New Cooper Clayton Smoking Cessation Class Starting

Do you want to stop smoking? The Cooper/Clayton Method is safe and it works. For over 25 years, this program has been helping people learn how to be smoke-free for the rest of their lives. It was started by Thomas Cooper, DDS, a dentist and former heavy smoker, and Richard Clayton, PhD, an expert on drug addiction.

A new class begins on August 27th at the Madison County Health Department Administration Building, 216 Boggs Lane, in Richmond. The class will meet from 7-8PM on Thursday for 13 weeks. If you would like to register or request more information please email us or call 859-228-2043.
