County Health offers way to stop smoking

RBC | The Rio Blanco County Department of Public Health and Environment is now assisting folks interested in not smoking by scheduling appointments for auricular therapy. In this procedure, a mild electronic stimulation is administered to the outside of both ears. It is provided by D.C. Stop Smoking, a small business out of Grand Junction. This procedure uses a mild electronic stimulation, similar to ear acupuncture, but no needles are involved. The procedure makes a person feel like they don’t need nicotine. Simple and effective methods are also taught to help overpower triggers that tell you to smoke. For more information, call Rio Blanco County Department of Public Health and Environment at 970-878-9520.
