Stop Smoking this Year!


We want to help...

Russell County Hospital is excited to be offering the Cooper / Clayton method to stop smoking.

What is the Cooper/Clayton Method?

The Cooper Clayton Method is a common sense approach to the Physical and Psychological addiction of Nicotine, using nicotine replacement therapy and behavior modification in a group setting.

Who Created the Cooper/Clayton Method?

This program was put together by Thomas Cooper, DDS who was a smoker for 36 years and Richard Clayton, Ph.D, expert in drug addiction.

People who succeed:

Have made the decision that they are better off being a non smoker, you can be motivated by many things such as, family, work, health, finances or insurance; but, YOU have to make the decision to stop smoking for YOU.

Have to be willing to accept some discomfort in making the transition from smoker to nonsmoker, there are no "quick fixes".

Have trust in the program and follow it as outlined, taking advantage of the support group.

What does the Cooper/Clayton Class Cost?

RCH offers assistance for those whose insurance does not cover smoking cessation. The class is free, the materials are free and as long as you attend meetings and remain compliant there are even funds available through the Hospital and our relationship with the Lake Cumberland Health Department to pay for nicotine replacement products after the first month.

Becoming a nonsmoker is not an easy journey, but it is manageable!

If a person follows the program as outlined, and takes advantage of the group support they CAN become, and REMAIN, a nonsmoker!
