There are many programs designed to help people quit smoking, but none of them match the success of the Freedom From Smoking® program.
• Ranked most effective smoking cessation program in a study of 100 managed care organizations conducted by Fordham University Graduate School of Business
• When the program is used in combination with smoking cessation medications, up to 60% of participants report having quit by the end of the program
• Freedom From Smoking® generates higher quit rates than people who try to quit on their own; 25% of participants report not smoking one year after the program ends, while only 5% of people who quit cold turkey remain non-smokers after one year
