Rodney Hall

"CHI has a nice laid-back relaxing environment. They welcome you with open arms, and it feels like home here each Wednesday. I also really got a lot of out of Carol's Smoking Cessation program which allowed me to cut back significantly.  Even though I'm still struggling to quit entirely, Carol still reaches out and provides support even though I'm no longer in the program.  She is very patient in the class, and offers a lot of helpful encouragement.  The program could help many others to quit and I do recommend it, not just for the gum and patches she gives out, but for the friendly environment she creates during each session."
