Smoking addiction has been said to parallel that of cocaine and heroin. The psychological dependency is even harder to overcome due to the availability of tobacco and its lethal, addictive drug, nicotine. Over the past two decades, stop smoking programs have come and gone, with little impact on the addiction. Most of these programs—including nicorette gum and the “patch”—have been drug (nicotine) based. Common sense dictates that you should not use the addictive substance to overcome the addiction! This approach is like having an alcoholic switch from scotch to wine to try to quit drinking. In addition, stop smoking programs have been dealing with either the physical or psychological aspects of the addiction; very few have considered detoxification.
The Healthpoint Approach
We believe the answer to overcoming nicotine addiction involves a multi-phasic approach: first, relieve the physical need for the substance without using a drug; two, address the psychological dependence to develop an addiction-free lifestyle; and three, support the body nutritionally to rid itself of toxins and repair cellular damage. Our approach is based on more than three decades of clinical experience, resulting in one of the highest success rates of all stop-smoking programs. And, it is holistic, painless and drug-free. The Healthpoint approach is unique. Our success rate is unprecedented in this industry.
