Worksite Program

Butt Stops Here Worksite Programs

We are pleased to offer the Butt Stops Here program at worksites throughout the Capital District. We provide a trained facilitator to run the program and all the supplies needed. All you need to do is recruit and register the participants! Helping your employees quit smoking not only helps to save their lives but also saves over $4,000 per year in lost productivity and health care costs. Below are the details and costs for this program.

Worksite role:

  • Provide a comfortable location for the group to meet once per week for 7 weeks.
  • Promote the program to employees and register interested participants.
  • Allow employees time to attend the program for one hour a week (Note: While it is up to the employer to determine if employees attend on work or personal time, we highly recommend employers allow for the one hour to be conducted on work time. The return on investment of that one hour will be well worth it for you and will encourage greater participation.)

Our role:

  • We will provide a trained and seasoned facilitator to run the group at your location once a week for seven weeks.
  • We will provide a 2-week supply of nicotine replacement therapy (patches or gum) to the group participants (Note: If a participant has a contraindication to using the medications, a doctor’s note will be required.)
  • We will provide all materials needed for each participant: Quitters Workbook, Survival Kit, Relaxation CD.
  • We will provide marketing materials that you can tailor to promote the program to employees.

Cost:

  • $350 program fee* to cover the facilitator (to be paid by employer)

*Some health plans, such as CDPHP, will cover the cost for the participant.
