2 Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers in Sterling, Illinois

The city of Sterling offers plenty of places to sit quietly or join in on healthy group activities. This is important for anyone learning to adjust to being sober.

Take a walk on the Eberley Park trails, or take a group from rehab to play a round of recreational baseball at Gartner Park Baseball Complex. Otherwise, take a dip in the water to cool off in the summer. In the winter, you can partake in a variety of snow or ice sports. If you prefer indoor activities, you can see a movie at the Carmike Sauk Valley 8 or perhaps get some exercise at the Westwood Fitness Sports Center.

All of this will help you as you learn to live without drugs and alcohol. This along with the attention you receive in rehab can turn your life around.
