It's never too late to quit smoking and improve your health!
Are you ready to quit? Have you tried to quit in the past and want to begin again?
The Carroll County Health Department has free help available! We offer individual counseling to help you quit using tobacco. Participants may be eligible to receive vouchers to cover the cost of nicotine replacement patches, gum or lozenges; or vouchers to cover part of the cost of Chantix (with a prescription from your doctor). Call 410-876-4429 or 410-876-4443 to schedule an appointment.
Two walk-in clinics are available every month. No appointment is necessary for the walk-in clinics.
