Research shows that youth participating in school sports are at greater risk for using alcohol and marijuana: http://preventionpluswellness.com/can-sports-prevent-youth-substance-use/.

That’s why we offer the evidence-based SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) program that integrates effective substance use prevention with fitness, sports and health promotion.

Randomized trials have shown the single-session SPORT PPW program prevents youth alcohol, tobacco and marijuana use while increasing physical activity by addressing healthy eating, sports and exercise, sleep, stress control, goal setting and positive self-identity.

You can read more about the SPORT PPW program and research evaluating its effectiveness on our website: http://preventionpluswellness.com/sport-prevention-plus-wellness/

SPORT PPW is being implemented throughout the US by healthcare providers, teachers, coaches, youth leaders, and parents.

Please call if you’d like to discuss how you can quickly and easily integrate the SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness program into your school sports physicals this year.

SPORT PPW can also be included in a school physical or health education class, after school program, school sports or recreation programs, youth group, pediatric care visit, and at home by parents.

We also offer the single-session evidenced-based InShape Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) program.

InShape PPW can provided to college students and other young adults participating in sports, exercise or recreation programs to prevent substance use and promote fitness and healthy behavior choices: http://preventionpluswellness.com/inshape-prevention-plus-wellness/
