1. Customize the Program to Meet Specific Individuals’ Needs

Not every smoker fits the same mold when they begin a smoking cessation program. Some will be more self motivated than others. Some have been through similar programs before and some will be faced with a brand new experience in your new program. Be sure to create a program that can be customizable and relatable for a wide variety of participants.

2. Encourage Accountability Among Participants

Group classes, activities and counseling are important aspects of a successful wellness smoking cessation program. You will certainly want to provide individualized aspects to the program as well (consider offering one-on-one coaching), but do not dismiss the value of the group dynamics. Participants will draw inspiration and encouragement from one another and a team environment fosters accountability.

As we stated in tip #1, each individual has their unique needs and challenges. And each person will also find that certain techniques and treatments work better for them. Give participants the flexibility to discover and decide on which direction to take in their own application of the program’s treatment options.
