About Us

QUiTWORKS-RI helps clinicians connect patients who want to quit smoking with free telephone counseling and other resources. Eligible callers may also receive up to a free 2-week supply of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) by mail as gum, patches, and lozenges while supplies last. After you submit a referral, QUiTWORKS-RI calls the patient within 3 business days and connects him/her with quit-smoking services, including evidence-based telephonic counseling. Once a certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist has made initial contact with your patient, or is unable to reach him/her, we’ll send you a follow-up report.

QUiTWORKS–RI is open to all Rhode Island residents, whether they have health insurance or not.
