” We know how costly it can be for some organizations to purchase high quality evidence-based substance abuse prevention and health programs. Interventions like ours have taken years to develop and evaluate their effectiveness.
But at Prevention Plus Wellness, our mission is to provide our one-of-a-kind prevention with wellness programs to every youth-serving non-profit, public and private organization that wants to implement them.
That is why we developed programs that target multiple health risk behaviors and can be implemented to an unlimited number of youth. It is also why we provide free program materials and charge no travel expenses with our onsite implementer and training the trainer workshops. Lastly, it is why we offer first-class yet economical grant writing services to fund your use of our Prevention Plus Wellness programs and training.
If you like what we are doing to promote the “whole health” of youth, purchase one of our cost-effective programs or training workshops, or contact us about writing a grant for your organization.”

“Our staff found SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness easy to use and very entertaining for youth. I recommend this program for anyone working with youth who wants to address multiple issues connected to choosing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.”
Debra McKenzie., Senior Vice President, Associated Youth Services, Kansas City, KS
“The SPORT lesson is so well laid out and easy to implement that our staff are appreciative of all they can do for our kids in the limited time we have with them! We plan to continue the program next year and are even considering expanding it to other sites once we have secured funding!”
Jessica Baxter, Director of Operations, Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming, Casper, WY
“While SPORT is a universal program, it allows counselors to “pre-screen” and identify students who may require other services. SPORT is a cost effective, evidence based program that is easy to use and compliments our other services. The ongoing support from the developer is a plus!”
