Our Approach

The Smoking Treatment Center (STC) is Southwest Louisiana’s pioneer nicotine treatment center.
We are here to help all those in the nicotine dependence cycle.

We utilize an evidence-based, patient-centered approach tailored to your specific needs. The STC combines the knowledge of our experienced, Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialists with the newest interventions and medications available. We meet with you and assess your personal goals, work schedule, medical history, and many other factors. We help YOU based on YOUR needs.

According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and disease. With the adult smoking rate in Calcasieu Parish at nearly a quarter of the population, and even higher rates in surrounding parishes, this program was built to help those who qualify take advantage of the free resources available through the Smoking Cessation Trust. The partnership with the Trust will allow the Smoking Treatment Center to treat a wider group of smokers in this region than has ever been treated in the past. In addition to those who qualify for services through the Trust, STC will also accept private pay, insurance and workplace wellness coverage.
