Be Well Arkansas is the Arkansas Department of Health's Wellness Services that link Arkansans to local resources they can use to improve their health and well-being.
Behaviors such as tobacco use, physical inactivity and poor diet contribute to chronic conditions, like diabetes and hypertension that directly impact the health of our state. In Arkansas, our leading causes of death include stroke, heart disease, and cancer and are directly related to these unhealthy behaviors.
The good news is that many of these illnesses can be managed, or even prevented, with access to the right resources.
In November 2018, the Arkansas Department of Health developed a new service called Be Well Arkansas to provide these resources to Arkansans. ADH now operates the Be Well Call Center at 833-283-WELL. Arkansans who call the national quitline (1-800-QUIT-NOW) are now routed to Be Well for services. In addition to offering tobacco or nicotine cessation services, Be Well also links people to diabetes management and hypertension control resources.
