TakeControl is a free, personalized, and interactive text messaging program.
It is designed to help you live your life as if you don’t have asthma.

What happens in TakeControl?

It’s easy to try, and you can stop at any time.

Here’s how it works:

    1. You text the word CONTROL to 401.234.0883.
    2. TakeControl will text you some questions about your asthma.
    3. Based on the answers you text back, you’ll receive customized text message tips about how you can create an asthma action plan that works for you.
    4. The messages will give you some ideas about action steps you can do yourself and how to work well with your healthcare provider.
    5. TakeControl will check in with you once a month for up to six months. Each month, the program will ask you how you’re doing with your asthma and update your text message tips. But you can stop at any time by texting STOP

Sample Messages

Some people get so used to the problems caused by asthma that they just live with them. You don’t have to. There are treatments to better control your asthma.

Many people feel that asthma controls their lives & worry about the next attack. If you feel that way, it’s time to explore new treatment options with a doctor.

Asthma is a complex disease. Tell your doctor how it’s been affecting you. Share your limitations & how you’ve been doing emotionally.

If you change your mind about receiving TakeControl messages, you can stop the messages by texting STOP.
