The Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients (STOP) program is offered at all three of our primary sites, and offers counselling support and Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) at no cost to patients wishing to quit smoking cigarettes. It is funded by the Government of Ontario as part of the Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy.
You have four times greater chance of quitting using NRT than trying to quit cold turkey. Using NRT decreases withdrawal symptoms like irritability and cravings for nicotine. Nicotine patches, gum, inhaler, lozenges, and mouth spray are available as needed for 26 weeks at no cost to you.
KCHC offers one-on-one support with a staff member trained in helping people quit smoking cigarettes. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you can make an appointment as well. If you join the program, you will discuss your quit plan with a staff member and get started with NRT. You will meet for appointments every two to four weeks to talk about what is working and what is not working for you. All information is private and confidential.
You do not need a referral: if you are eligible, you can book an appointment yourself. To be eligible, you must have an OHIP card and live in Ontario, and you must be a current smoker or have quit smoking cigarettes within the last month. If you are under 16, we will need a parent or guardian’s consent. If you are part of a Family Health Team (FHT) that offers STOP, you should access this program via your FHT. If you have participated in the STOP program in the past, it must have been at least one year since you were last enrolled.
Give us a call to see if you are eligible to participate by calling 613.542.2949 x4 (Weller), 613.549.1440 (Barrack), or 613.354.8937 (Napanee).

This online program is designed to support all families and caregivers in learning how to address and prevent adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Research has linked adverse childhood experiences to physical and mental health issues later in life. The content and structure of the program helps to minimize children’s and families’ exposure to ACEs through understanding attachment, healthy communication and relationships, child development, infant mental health, managing emotions and stress specific to children and families. More information can be found on our flyer.
