DRH Health encourages our PATIENTS, TEAM MEMBERS, CUSTOMERS, and COMMUNITY MEMBERS to commit or recommit to healthy, smoke-free lives.

Most of us know all too well the devastating impact tobacco can have on people’s health. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, accounting for 29% of all cancer deaths. Yet, 34 million American adults still smoke. The most important thing smokers can do to improve their health is to quit smoking. At the same time, we know addiction to nicotine in cigarettes is one of the strongest and most deadly addictions one can have.

Quitting is hard. It takes commitment and starts with a plan, often takes more than one quit attempt, and requires a lot of support. Getting help through counseling and/or prescription medications can double or triple the chances of quitting successfully.
