COVID-19 Attention Message.
Although our physical doors at AACC are closed in response to COVID-19, the Tobacco Cessation Program nurses are working remotely, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Now more than ever, lung health is so important! Our nurses will help you begin or continue your transition to a nicotine-free lifestyle through weekly phone conversations and mailed nicotine patches, gum and lozenges.
If you would like to speak with a nurse, call 410-777-2480 and leave a voicemail with your name, AACC ID number and a phone number for us to call you back (be sure your voicemail is set up). If you call during our normal business hours, we will respond within one hour.
Call 911 for medical emergencies or Mobile Crisis at 410-768-5522 for mental health or substance use crisis.
