Calling Nova Scotia home means ocean views, active living and welcoming communities. Practicing here means working with passionate colleagues, providing world class care, and helping people be healthy and stay healthy, for generations. The Nova Scotia Health Authority provides health services to Nova Scotians and some specialized services to Atlantic Canadians. We operate hospitals, health centres and collaborative community-based programs across the province.
The Smoking Cessation Program offers group counselling for individuals interested in quitting or cutting back on their use of tobacco. During group sessions, participants are given opportunities to share concerns, successes, ask questions and support each other. Nicotine replacement products may also be available as part of the support in reducing tobacco use.
