Health Care Providers: This is your guide to the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline.
Health Care Providers
Health care providers like you play a critical part in helping people quit tobacco. How? By talking to your patients about their tobacco use, offering advice and prescription cessation medication and referring them to the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline. Since 2003, the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline has helped more than 450,000 Oklahomans.
The 5 A’s of Tobacco Cessation
The 5 A’s of tobacco cessation are proven to work. This five-part intervention helps people quit. Learn how you can ask, advise, assess, assist and arrange.
Services & Resources for Patients
There’s a reason Oklahomans trust the Helpline. With evidence-based cessation methods, the Helpline greatly increases their odds of success. Each participant can receive the following:
- At least a two-week supply of free nicotine replacement therapy
- Access to quit coaching
- 24/7 phone, web or text support
Plus, SoonerCare members may qualify for additional medications when prescribed by their doctor. These products don’t count against SoonerCare’s six-prescription limit — and combining them may increase the chances of success.
When combined, these tools and resources are highly effective. The Helpline also has social communities on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where people can connect, share tips and stay motivated. Set your patients up for success by recommending the Helpline.
