Arkansas Tobacco Quitline
One of the most important calls a tobacco user can make is to the Arkansas Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669). In the fight to be tobacco free, nobody has to do it alone. Research shows that tobacco users who use quitlines are more likely to successfully quit than those who go at it alone. A quit counselor will provide guidance and compassionate support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Make the call because:
- It’s confidential with one-on-one personalized help
- 24-hour direct line to professionally trained quit counselors
- 24-hour online community of groups that share and support those trying to quit
- Text messaging for web or phone enrollees
- Nicotine replacement therapy, such as patches, lozenges, or gum while supplies last at no cost
The Arkansas Tobacco Quitline offers a five call program for tobacco users. Quit counselor’s help enrollees come up with a realistic quit plan that fits their lifestyle. Pregnant women can enroll in a ten call program with a dedicated counselor. The counselor will assist the mother every step of the way, including 6 calls during pregnancy and 4 calls after the baby is born. Services are available in English, Spanish and additional languages as needed, including Marshallese. Enroll online now here.
Whether you are trying to quit or working to help somebody else succeed, you are about to be twice as strong as you were – and that much closer to your goal. For more information, tips, or resources, visit Stamp Out Smoking.
The Arkansas Tobacco Quitline Referral Program
The Electronic Referral (e-referral) program and the fax referral program link tobacco users to the Arkansas Tobacco Quitline. As a health care provider, you play an important role in your patients’ wellbeing and overall health. For patients who use tobacco and nicotine products, you are an important source of information and support in their cessation efforts.
The E-Referral program is designed to help refer tobacco and nicotine users to the Arkansas Tobacco Quitline. Once a referral is submitted, the tobacco or nicotine user will receive a call from a Quit counselor within 24 hours. Anyone who is referred should be planning a quit date within the next 30 days. Quit counselors work with tobacco and nicotine users to create a customized, individual quit plan, which includes free counseling services by phone, online, or both.
HIPPA compliant providers are able to create an account to receive outcome reports for the individuals referred. Once an account is created, they will be able to submit referrals and receive feedback up to five times throughout the program.
- When a fax or e-referrals is received
- At the time the patient enrolls in coaching (or if the patient is unreachable)
- When a patient is shipped NRT
- When a patient completes the program
- When a patient dis-enrolls for another reason
Fax Referral Program
This program gives concerned community partners and health care providers another way to connect to the Quitline. A HIPAA-compliant fax referral form secures the prospective quitter’s consent to have the Quitline get in touch. The form is then faxed to the Quitline, so Quit counselors can contact the patient at a time convenient for the caller. The fax referral form is available in English and Spanish.
