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.
