Expanding business helps customers kick the habit

A business that helps clients stop smoking has responded to increasing demand by moving to a larger location in Grand Junction and opening a new location in Denver.

“We are very excited to see the growth of our business in the last couple of years. It’s always good to know that you’re offering such a life-changing service to those who really want a positive change,” said Dan McGhee, who operates DC Stop Smoking with his wife, Cherlyn McGhee.

In Grand Junction, DC Stop Smoking moved to larger offices at 533 Bogart Lane, Unit E.

In Denver, the firm opened a new office at 2530 W. 38th Ave.

The McGhees said they opened the Denver office in response to inquiries about their services from the Eastern Slope.

DC Stop Smoking offers the Leslie-Cam auriculotherapy procedure, which uses a slight electrical stimulation to treat tobacco and nicotine addiction.

Auriculotherapy first was studied at the University of California Los Angeles in the 1950s. Robert Leslie and Richard Campana founded the Leslie-Cam Stop Smoking Center in St. Louis in 1991 and refined auriculotherapy techniques to treat smoking and nicotine addiction.

DC Stop Smoking is the only business outside St. Louis to offer the procedure.

“We are fortunate to be able to offer such a unique solution to our customers’ nicotine addictions — 85 percent of them stop smoking with only one treatment,” Cherlyn McGhee said.

DC Stop Smoking treats clients individually or in groups. The firm also offers onsite group services to Western Colorado businesses. Office hours are by appointment only.
