Tobacco Cessation coordinator Alissa Dorman talks about Tobacco Cessation at CMH


Clatsop County’s 94.9 The Bridge caught up with CMH Tobacco Cessation coordinator Alissa Dorman in September. She talks about the biggest challenges to people quitting tobacco, how she helps inpatients and outpatients work at quitting tobacco.

Dorman, who is a certified tobacco treatment specialist, works with primary care providers to provide counseling and prescription support that gives patients the best changes of succeeding in quitting. Most health insurance plans will cover the cost of meeting with Dorman.
