Get Help to Quit Smoking
Quitting smoking is the single most important step a smoker can take to improve the length and quality of his or her life. Stopping smoking can be tough but smokers don’t have to quit alone. The American Lung Association has lots of options to help adult and teen smokers quit for good.
Smoking Cessation Trust (SCT)
In late 2011, the judgment of a class action lawsuit titled Scott v. American Tobacco Company ordered certain tobacco companies to fund a statewide 10-year smoking cessation program to benefit more than 200,000 Louisiana smokers who are members of the plaintiff class (the "Scott Class"), a court-established and court-supervised smoking cessation program to benefit Louisiana residents who began their smoking habit before September 1, 1988.
If you are approved as a member of the Scott class, SCT will arrange for you to receive, at no cost, any of the following cessation services:
individual/group cessation counseling
telephone quit-line support, and/or intensive cessation support services
