“We know how costly it can be for non-profit 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 and materials to every non-profit, parent and youth services professional who wants to implement them.
For that reason, we provide free and low cost prevention program materials along with our complete evidence-based programs. We also provide low cost grant writing services to get your prevention and health programs funded.
We rely on users like you make a donation, or buy a program or service you can afford. These donations and purchases allow us to provide program materials to all youth-serving organizations.
If you like what we are doing to help youth, please contact us today to make a tailored donation to provide free evidence-based Prevention Plus Wellness programs and training to your favorite non-profit.
Wishing you and your family peace, joy and health.”

Complete Evidence Based Multiple Health Behavior Interventions
Prevention Plus Wellness, LLC (formally briefhealthprograms.com) provides the only federally-registered evidence-based programs (NREPP) which cost-effectively address multiple health risk behaviors among youth and young adults in brief motivational interventions.
Prevention Plus Wellness programs are designed to improve the “whole health” of youth by teaching them to link avoiding alcohol, tobacco and drug use with positive behaviors and images like participating in sports and physical activities, eating healthy, getting plenty of sleep, and controlling stress.
Each of our integrated prevention with wellness programs is founded upon the evidence-based Behavior-Image Model and use the proven SFGF practices model to provide single-session interventions and other brief motivational strategies designed specifically for young people.
Our complete prevention with wellness programs include:
- SPORT© Prevention Plus Wellness
- InShape© Prevention Plus Wellness
- Motivational Coaching Program©
- In God’s Image©
Free and Low Cost Prevention Program Materials for Non-Profits
We have provided free samples of our SPORT and InShape Prevention Plus Wellness program materials to hundreds of non-profits around the US. In addition, we’ve given away tens of thousands of dollars worth of our complete evidence-based programs and training materials to non-profits at no cost due to generous donations.
Every dollar donated to PPW will continue to be used to provide program and training materials to youth-serving non-profits which cannot afford to purchase our full-priced prevention with wellness programs.

- SPORT© and InShape© Classroom Lessons

Advantages Over Other Prevention and Health Programs
Our unique multiple health behavior programs increase the likelihood of achieving broader and larger intervention effects than typical prevention and health programs that target a limited number or type of risks, or present only negative risk information.
Prevention Plus Wellness interventions allow any organization to easily and quickly add wellness to their current substance abuse programs, or substance abuse prevention to their sports or health programs.
PPW programs are being implemented by health and fitness specialists in 46 states, in schools, youth organizations, summer camps, sports and recreation leagues, hospitals and clinics, juvenile justice settings, substance abuse and mental health agencies, and faith-based organizations.
We provide low cost grant writing, consulting and editing services to get prevention and health program funding for your organization. Call us today to find out more: (904) 472-5022.
What Are People Saying?
“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.”

“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
