The Cooper Clayton Method is a safe and effective way to help people stay smoke-free for the rest of their lives. The Cooper/Clayton Method is a comprehensive behavioral smoking cessation program. It was started over 20 years ago by two faculty members at the University of Kentucky. Thomas Cooper, DDS, a dentist and former heavy smoker developed the program with Richard Clayton, PhD, an expert on drug addiction.


This highly successful program is science based utilizing proven methods, which include education, skills training and social support. The classes consist of 12 one hour weekly sessions followed by relapse prevention. Participants utilize nicotine replacement products such as the nicotine patch, nicotine gum, or nicotine lozenge.


Congratulations to our New Non-Smokers!
