Quitting Smoking Help

Tobacco Cessation Treatment Program

Quitting smoking is hard enough, but struggling with nicotine withdrawal while undergoing cancer treatment is a major challenge.

Roswell Park’s cessation program is currently being updated. We are still committed to our patients. If you need assistance in the interim, please contact the NYS Smokers' Quitline at 1-866-697-8487.
