The following activities were adapted from the American Cancer Society as part of the free tobacco cessation curriculum called Freshstart. Wellness coaches can become trained facilitators of the Freshstart program.
This curriculum is intended to provide wellness coaches with a framework to guide conversations and activities to support individuals through quitting. Employers and wellness programs should contact Boulder County Public Health before implementing a curriculum like this to ensure proper application. The curriculum is intended to be used in conjunction with tobacco prevention and cessation best-practices, including providing access to approved cessation medications, cessation counseling, and smoke-free policies.
Each week of the curriculum provides an objective and activities to achieve that objective. This should not be considered medical advice, and this curriculum might not be the best approach to quitting for everyone.
