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.
