CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The state of Wyoming has improved a program that helps residents stop smoking or using smokeless tobacco.

The program run through the Wyoming Department of Health offers free nicotine replacement therapy for those who medically qualify and will also cover a significant portion of the costs for prescription medications meant to help individuals quit.

Phone or online support is also available at no cost to Wyoming residents.

The program has been updated thanks to the state working it National Jewish Health, a Denver hospital known as a respiratory healthcare leader.

Clients can now receive medications by mail rather than going to a pharmacy in person. A special program is offered for smokers or smokeless tobacco users who may be pregnant, as well as a program tailored for smokeless tobacco users.
