Develop a plan

There’s a wide range of services and products available when it comes to smoking cessation, and some will work better than others for you. If you don’t know where to start, the University Health Centre Pharmacy can help develop a plan tailored to your needs so you can finally say goodbye to tobacco forever.


Our smoking cessation service gives you access to dedicated professional support to reach your goals. You’ll have a one-on-one meeting with a pharmacist who is a Certified Tobacco Educator. Our pharmacists are also authorized to provide advice, recommendations and prescriptions for any medication used to help quit smoking.


It’s free to get started today. You won’t be charged for the initial consultation and follow-ups — your Alberta Health coverage allows you to receive guidance at no cost.

You will only have to pay for the specific products or prescriptions you need to support your plan. Many private insurance plans (including U of A undergraduate, graduate, post-doc and staff plans) may cover a significant portion of the cost of the products.
