The Helpline Process
Every journey is different. Your Helpline experience may vary based on age, insurance and whether you’re pregnant — or plan to be. No matter what, we’ve got you covered. Explore the sections below to see how it works.
Kick Start Your Journey
When you call 1-800-QUIT NOW, you can connect with a Quit Coach immediately if you choose. To complete your sign-up, our registration specialists will ask some questions about your age, tobacco use, medical history, pregnancy status and more. As you answer, they’ll complete your registration form for you. Once you’re done, your Quit Guide will be on the way.
Sign Up Online
To register online, click the Sign Up button at OKhelpline.com. Your Quit Coach will contact you within 48 business hours. To finish signing up, you’ll need to fill out the registration form. It asks about your age, tobacco use, medical history, pregnancy status and more. Once we receive your completed form, your Quit Guide will be on the way.
Shortly after you register, you’ll receive a FREE Quit Guide. It’s packed with resources, worksheets, information and more. It’s especially useful for picking a quit date and organizing your new, tobacco-free lifestyle. After you receive your helpful Quit Guide, your NRT will arrive a few days later.
NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy)
Helpline participants aged 18 and older are eligible for FREE NRT, including patches, gum or lozenges. Not sure which one to choose? Your Quit Coach can help you decide.
Your NRT should arrive 10-14 days after your registration is complete. You can check your order status via your Health Portal. If you choose, you can order a second round of NRT to step down your nicotine dosage before discontinuing NRT products.
Participants younger than 18 do not qualify for NRT services. Pregnant women are eligible for NRT through the Helpline with a medical override. Please consult your doctor.
Everything You Need. All In One Place.
Once you are registered for the Helpline, a personalized Health Portal is created based on your quit plan. The Health Portal lets you customize your Helpline experience. You can order NRT, change your plan, turn on text alerts, add email support and more. The Health Portal puts you in control and helps you keep track of your progress. If you are already registered for the Helpline, you can log in to your Health Portal by clicking the Log In button at the top of the page.
Helpful Quit Coaches
Quit Coaches are in your corner every step of the way. They’re available 24/7, and they never judge. Quit Coaches receive 270 hours of training in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, education, skill building, reinforcement, and behavioral modeling. If it sounds a little complicated, don’t worry. Your Quit Coach will guide you on your journey.
Quit Coaches receive training to work with youth, minority populations, pregnant women and people with mental health issues. They’re sensitive to your individual needs, and they’re committed to delivering the support you need.
Signing Up Again
For many people, it takes a few tries to overcome tobacco addiction. If you’re ready to give it another shot, we can help. Oklahomans are eligible to sign up for Helpline services twice every 12 months.
If it’s been 90 days since your last registration, you’ll need to update your medical history before starting again. Feeling frustrated? It’s normal, don’t give up. Keep trying, and we’ll help you succeed.
