Prevention Plus Wellness programs are designed to enhance the positive development of youth by teaching them to link avoiding alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and other drug use with increasing wellness behaviors and images like participating in sports and physical activities, eating healthy, getting plenty of sleep, controlling stress, and enhancing spiritual habits.
Each of our integrated prevention with wellness programs is founded upon the evidence-based Prevention Plus Wellness Approach which uses proven conceptual and practices models. The PPW Approach permits our programs to be implemented in four simple steps: 1) Screen youth for their health habits, 2) Provide tailored feedback and positive image messages, 3) Help youth set and monitor multiple behavior health improvement goals, and 4) Follow-up with youth in the future.

Independent Reports Find SPORT Inexpensive and Produces Second Best Cost-Benefit Ratio among Effective Prevention Programs
Two recent reviews of the top prevention programs in the country by the Washington State Institute for Public Policy found that the SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness program was very inexpensive to use (second only to InShape), yet produced cost-benefits just pennies less than Life Skills Training for preventing youth substance use, and youth marijuana use.
SPORT was also found to produce significant cost-benefits for preventing tobacco use among youth too! Even better, SPORT is implemented in just one lesson, not 10, 20 or 30 lessons like some prevention programs.

“We have been implementing the SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness Program now for two years and it is great! Staff are finding that it is simple and easy to implement, and kids are responding with engagement.”
Bhavana Pahwa, MA, LCSW-R, PhD, White Plains Youth Bureau, White Plains, NY
“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!”
Christine Cavallucci, LCSW, Director of Clinical Services, ADAPP, New York, NY
