Does nicotine have you hooked? Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village can help fight your nicotine dependence.

The center will begin a Nicotine Dependence Program Thursday where participants will receive an individual assessment and a personalized nicotine cessation plan.

Five weekly group sessions offer support and address the physical and psychological effects of nicotine dependence. Participants will learn coping skills, stress management techniques, how to manage nicotine cravings and how to remain smoke free.

According to the medical center, research shows that the best way to help people stop smoking is to address all aspects of the addiction, including the physical and emotional issues related to the habit. Most nicotine users who try to stop on their own are unsuccessful - only 5 percent are able to do so permanently. Through a comprehensive, medically advance program, smokers can greatly increase their chances of quitting.

The fee for the program is $195, including the personalized nicotine cessation plan and five group sessions.

For information, call Health Source at (888) 394-9400.
