Cooper Clayton Smoking Cessation Program
Morehead State University’s employee wellness program, Live Well, Work Well @ MSU, is sponsoring the Cooper/Clayton Method to Stop Smoking class for employees and spouses at no cost.
The Cooper/Clayton Method is a safe and effective way to help people stay smoke-free for the rest of their lives. The Cooper/Clayton Method is a comprehensive behavioral smoking cessation program. It was started over 25 years ago by two faculty members at the University of Kentucky. Thomas Cooper, DDS, a dentist and former heavy smoker developed the program with Richard Clayton, PhD, an expert on drug addiction.
This highly successful program is science based utilizing proven methods, which include education, skills training and social support. The classes consist of 12 one hour weekly sessions followed by relapse prevention. Participants utilize nicotine replacement products such as the nicotine patch, nicotine gum, or nicotine lozenge.
Principle # 1: Success is nothing more than a plan that is adhered to.
Principle # 2: A major problem can be solved when cut up into a series of smaller problems.
The University’s wellness program will reimburse the cost of nicotine replacement products at the end of the course for full-time employees who complete the full 12 week program. Simply keep your purchase receipts and submit them to the instructor at the last class meeting.
