The SEARHC Tobacco Program provides public education about the dangers of tobacco and secondhand smoke, promotes quitting tobacco, and works with Southeast communities, tribal groups and other organizations to design smoke-free or tobacco free policies.
SEARHC no longer provides tobacco quit services. For help to quit tobacco please call Alaska’s Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669). This is a free service to all Alaskans. They offer 2 weeks of patches and 2 weeks of gum with one enrollment every 6 months (or two times per year), quit literature and one-on-one support. New research suggests that combination NRT yields higher quit rates than the patch alone. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The initial call will include talking to two people– a registrar and a quit coach and takes 45-60 minutes.
