Tell Tobacco To Back Off

Programs Through UNH That Help You Be The Best Version Of Yourself

We have all heard by now that tobacco consumption is a huge drag on our health. Decreasing or quitting the use of tobacco products has exponential benefits, but the process isn’t always an easy road traveled-- especially on one’s own. That’s where UNH comes in. The university provides several outlets that administration and staff can receive support through in difficult processes such as quitting tobacco use.

  • The Employee Assistance Program - Better known as EAP, is a counseling service meant to help employees and their immediate family through difficult times. EAP is a completely confidential resource provided through the university, whose main concern is getting you back on the right track.
  • Harvard Pilgrim Health Care - HPHC members are eligible for a health coach. A health coach may be a good option if you are seeking personalized care, individual sessions, and close monitoring of progress. Whether it’s related to nutrition, stress, or tobacco cessation, your health coach will come up with a plan that best suits your lifestyle.
  • University of New Hampshire Health Services - Here you’ll find everything from counseling, substance education via S.A.F.E. and kits to help quit, free on your behalf. To find out more information about support groups head on over to the UNH Health Services website or stop by their building on Pettee Brook Lane, across from Holloway Commons and next to Paul College.

Quitting can feel like an isolating struggle, but it doesn’t have to be. The university wants all its employees to be the best version of them. By providing several forms of support each individual can find a program to suit his or her needs.
