Iowa Health Department Expanding Nicotine Replacement Program

The Iowa Department of Public Health is expanding its free nicotine replacement program in hopes of helping more residents quit smoking or chewing tobacco. The agency announced Friday that beginning Wednesday, people who enroll in the Quitline Iowa program will be eligible for eight weeks of nicotine replacement therapy. That's double the four weeks of therapy that was available.The agency says the longer people have access to nicotine replacement patches, lozenges or gum, the better their chance of quitting use of tobacco.
