HOW IT ALL BEGAN ... The concept for our Smoking Cessation Retreat Program was designed by Yvonne Romero, Credentialed Addiction Specialist and long-standing member of "International Reciprocity and Consortium of Professional Counselors"- also a member of the American Lung Association, Certified with Department of Health and Hospitals, Tobacco Control Program.
After many years of clinical practice in the field of Addiction treatment, working with many drugs of addiction and substances of abuse - she added Nicotine Certification treatment in 2006 with the ability to now state experience in Nicotine Treatment for over a decade and began the Smoking Cessation Wellness Quit Retreat Program.
Recognizing a need for Smokers to have more personalized treatment options available to them, Yvonne created 'Smoking Cessation Wellness Quit Retreats in June 2014.

Habits.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE ... When Nicotine was introduced as a chemical drug of ,dependency and addiction Yvonne had to quit smoking! After all, you cannot work as an
Addiction Specialist and be addicted to Nicotine! So she had to Quit and shortly thereafter, ending up teaching the Smokers Cessation Program at SCI, NY in 2006.
Later in her career, beginning in 2014, she felt the need to share all her skills learned and taught to others Therapists, with as many people as possible -creating a successful
One of a Kind Quit Smoking Program - Unique to any other program current today.
During these years as treatment professionals, we have found the hardest part of quitting are the first few days, so the goal is to "Set your Quit Date".
We provide you with the educational tools to understand and control your nicotine addiction whether it be cigarettes, e-cigs, nicotine gum/mints, cigars and chewing tobacco.
