DiDonato, Katherine, PhD, ACT Behavioral Health and Cognitive Therapy Center 890 Mountain Avenue, New Providence

Looking to Stop Smoking and Remain Smoke Free?

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.

Try Our Stop Smoking Now Program

Summit Medical Group’s Stop Smoking Now program is both affordable and effective and follows protocols set forth by the American Lung Association, offering strategies that can help you manage and overcome the physiological, psychological, and behavioral aspects of smoking cessation. The program teaches the skills and techniques that have been shown through evidence-based research to help smokers quit.

The Stop Smoking Now Program is held at 890 Mountain Avenue in New Providence

Meet one-on-one with Behavioral Health Specialist, Katherine DiDonato, PHD, ACT, for a series of five recommended sessions where you will obtain strategies for coping with the difficult first days of quitting, learn to recognize and understand environmental cues and emotional triggers, and develop new, positive skills and behaviors to keep you motivated.
