" Our clients have been thrilled that we are offering this program and many have expressed the gratitude in the help they are getting. So many of our clients have stated that they are so happy to have this help available to them and that they have wanted to quit for a very long time but didn't know how, or didn't have the confidence that they could do it alone. Most definitely our clients could not afford the Nicotine Replacement Therapies themselves."
