STOP SMOKING UNIT
Free your Life of Bad Fumes
Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the world. It hides behind 30% of heart conditions and is the leading cause of cancer (and death from cancer). In addition, it has been shown that smoking increases both the risk of and the duration of work absenteeism. To fight against this consequence, we provide you with a personalised stop smoking plan which has been proven to be effective.
The Stop Smoking Unit at Asunción Klinika is coordinated by Doctor María del Mar del Castillo, Expert and Master in Tobacco use from the University of Cantabria.
Unlike other similar therapies, at Asunción Klinika's Stop Smoking Unit we help people who want to stop smoking to approach their addiction individually, combining therapy and psychosocial and personal monitoring with pharmacological support.
The therapy has three phases:
Preparation phase: In this phase an assessment of the smoker is carried out. Finding out how and where this person is, why they smoke, what degree of motivation they have, what are the added problems... And depending on this, the time to stop smoking is defined.
Abstinence phase: Once the assessment has taken place, the treatment strategy is planned, which will consist of helping the smoker to stop smoking and maintain abstinence. There we can use different methods, pharmacological and non-pharmacological, and psychological support with different techniques. During this phase the patient is offered psychological or pharmacological support, depending on their needs.
Maintenance phase: to prevent relapses
The Stop Smoking therapy is made up of various appointments to support the patient at the different times of the process of quitting smoking. During this, spirometries, CO measurements or regular weight controls will be carried out, all with the aim of monitoring the person in depth until they reach the objective of stopping smoking definitively.
