The California Smokers' Helpline is pleased to offer free, new patient materials in English and Spanish, targeted to smokers who are pregnant or have children age 5 and under. These materials are available free of charge and shipping, and while there is no maximum order size, each order must total a minimum of 25 pieces.
In addition to promoting the Helpline's free evidence-based telephone counseling services, the materials promote free nicotine patches for qualified smokers who are pregnant or have children age 5 or under, mailed directly from the Helpline.
Helpline staff screen callers who request nicotine patches for contraindications, including pregnancy. For callers with contraindications, physician approval is required.
These new materials and free nicotine patches are made possible by funding from First 5 California.
