First 5 Materials

The California Smokers' Helpline offers a variety of free materials for your patients who smoke and are pregnant or have children age 5 or under. In addition to promoting the Helpline's free evidence-based telephone counseling services, the materials promote free nicotine patches for these audiences, mailed directly from the Helpline. Helpline staff screen callers who request nicotine patches for contraindications, including pregnancy. For callers with contraindications, physician approval is required.
