CRYSTAL LAKE – The McHenry County Department of Health and Centegra will offer quit smoking classes for adults starting Sept. 10.

The seven-week class will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center, 200 E. Congress Parkway in Crystal Lake. A $25 course fee is refundable if all sessions are attended.

Class members also will receive a free three-day pass to Centegra’s Health Bridge Fitness Center. To register, call MCDH at 815-334-4525 or 1-877-CENTEGRA.  

Classes will teach practical ways to end nicotine addiction through group support and behavior modification.  They also will review nicotine replacement products that are currently on the market.

Instruction is provided by MCDH staff trained in the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking program. This program has helped tens of thousands of smokers quit over the past 30 years.

To speak with a counselor immediately, call the Illinois Tobacco Quit Line at 1-866-QUIT-YES.
