ProCare, The Fono and Asian Smokefree Communities- Comprehensive Care are providers of the FREE Stop Smoking Service in Auckland & Waitemata. This face-to-face service is free to people who have decided to stop smoking who ‘live, work, learn or play’ in the Auckland or Waitemata DHB regions (Central, East and West Auckland, as well as the North Shore and up near Wellsford) and who are eligible for publically-funded health services.
The free service consists of a personalised, face-to-face programme in which people are supported through their quit journey by a qualified expert in stop smoking techniques. The programme provides choice and is flexible to meet the individual’s needs. For example, people can choose either group-based sessions with peer support and expert advice or one-to-one sessions.
