Our team of wellness experts can help you to kick the habit once and for all. Addiction to nicotine can be very difficult to overcome. However, it is not impossible. Our philosophy is not to just ignore the excuses or simply refuse to accept them but to empower each employee to be able to discard each and every one of their excuses themselves. Research clearly shows that group therapy and self-help assisted programmes are more effective than other methods in helping people to quit. In fact, self-help assisted programmes like ours have been shown to be 51% effective, which is quite a good outcome when compared to a 15% for Nicotine Replacement Therapy, 23% for GP Prescription drugs and 31% for the e -cigarette.
Our 8 week Interactive Programme consists of 8 one-hour Group Sessions with a Counselling Psychologist, supported by weekly material to help motivate and educate participants on how to combine giving up with some new health habits.
We adopted a group approach to Call it Quits, in a group therapy setting our Psychologists to work with employees to help them unravel the psychological factors and the emotional reasons that may have contributed to the reason that they are still smoking. We provide each employee with the strategies and skills needed to refrain from smoking, as well as helping them to cope with the withdrawal symptoms they are likely to suffer.
We do not ask participants to give up on Day 1, rather we help them to make their own decision anytime during the 8 week programme. Studies have shown that it takes at least 6 weeks post quitting before the amount of nicotinic receptors in the brain return to the level of a non-smoker. We measure those that successfully give up during the course of the programme and then reconnect after 1 month to deliver any extra support needed.
Our eLearning programme is available within our I Commit programme. I Commit is our innovative, online e-learning programme designed to empower your employees to succeed in lifestyle changing commitments that will improve their physical or mental health.
