Freedom From Smoking


with Elaine Sipe, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Calendar Sep 13, 2021 at 1 pm, runs for 7 weeks
1 additional session on Oct 12, 2021

What better thing to be thankful for than to have quit smoking by Thankgiving!!!

Available to all Aroostook County residents ages 18 thru adult through a partnership with ACAP and Maine Cancer Foundation.

Our in-person Freedom From Smoking group clinics include eight sessions led by a certified facilitator with a small group of people. The program features a step-by-step plan for quitting smoking and each session is designed to help smokers gain control over their behavior. Because no single quit smoking plan is right for all smokers, the program presents a variety of evidence-based techniques for individuals to combine into their own plan to quit smoking. The clinic format also encourages participants to work on the process and problems of quitting both individually and as part of a group.

This 7-week program meets once a week, with the exception of week #4 which includes an additional check-in session on Thursday.

Program facilitated by Elaine Sipe an Aroostook County Action Program (ACAP) Community Educator

This class is offered live, in-person at SAD 1 Adult & Community Education, located behind PIHS.

Family Violence Project Volunteer Training via Zoom Messalonskee F21


with Jaime Mooney, Mid-Maine Regional Adult Community Education

This course will examine the dynamics of domestic abuse, the services of Family Violence Project (FVP), and effective victim advocacy and safety planning.  Successful completion of this course prepares participants to become FVP Volunteer Helpline Advocates. As Helpline Advocates, volunteers would answer/return calls placed to our 24-hour helpline for those affected by domestic violence, assisting callers by providing support, education, resources and safety planning.  Prior to being accepted into the class a participant must complete the application process (which includes an interview and background checks which need to be completed by 4:30 on Sept. 8) with the Family Violence Project.  While the course is free, we do request a $25 donation from those who are able to provide it; this will help cover the cost of the background checks. Tuesday, Oct. 12 will be a make up class for the holiday on Monday, Oct. 11.
