Help to Quit Smoking

Project Filter is the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s tobacco control program. We have four primary goals; help people quit using tobacco, keep kids from starting, eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke and eliminate tobacco related health disparities. Project Filter offers free, evidence based cessation services to all Idahoans. This includes phone counseling, free patches, gum or lozenges, a text to quit program as well as many other resources. We also work closely with local health districts all over the state to ensure that free tobacco cessation resources and classes are available to people regardless of where they live in Idaho.
