Tobacco Cessation Classes Offered by KDMC  


King’s Daughters Medical Center’s Tobacco Cessation program has helped hundreds of people throughout our region break their addiction to cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products.

Participants meet for one hour each week for 24 weeks. Classes are offered year-round and can be joined at any time. Courses take place at the following times:

  • 6-7 p.m. Tuesdays
  • noon to 1 p.m. Wednesdays

Tobacco cessation products, behavior modification and group support are the cornerstones of this highly successful program, which is medically supervised by oncologist David Goebel, M.D. The classes are free, however, participants are responsible for purchasing tobacco cessation products (patches, lozenges, and/or gum or Chantix). Class participants also receive access to the Ashland Area YMCA while enrolled.

All sessions take place at the KDMC Health Education Center (lower level of Lexington Avenue parking garage, 2201 Lexington Ave.). Registration is preferred and can be made by calling (606) 408-6400.

KDMC is a locally controlled, not-for-profit, 465-bed regional referral center, offering comprehensive cardiac, vascular, medical, surgical, maternity, pediatric, rehabilitative, psychiatric, cancer, neurological, pain care, wound care and home care services.
