People are more likely to get Kick It coaching when referred by their healthcare providers.
Ask every patient/client if they use tobacco or live with someone who does. We have specific coaching protocols for people who smoke, vape, or chew, as well as for the people who live with them.
Advise tobacco users to quit, even if they’ve tried before and failed. Every attempt is important.
Refer tobacco users (or those who live with tobacco users) to Kick It California to get a free, personal quit plan (or a plan to help someone quit) from our trained Quit Coaches.
We also offer Direct Messaging referral via email and Electronic Health Record referral via VPN tunnel. These options require IT support from your organization and ours. For more information, please complete our Referral Interest Form and we will follow up with you.
