What Are Providers Saying About PPW?

  • SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness

    “The SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness program provides a whole body experience, where youth focus on improvements in their lives instead of drugs. Additionally, based on my observations a light bulb goes on when they connect the future self with the lifestyle they want to obtain of being healthy and happy.” 

    Barry Schmidt, Neighborhood Resource Center, Bay City, MI

    “The SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness program has opened up deeper discussion around a multitude of health-related topics with the YMCA young leaders group.” 

    Wilma Weber, Grays Harbor County Public Health, Aberdeen, WA

    “I am amazed at the response and success our SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) administrators, counselors, parents and youth are having in the schools.  One parent reported his youth had changed to a healthier diet at home and is implementing some of the strategies from the SPORT PPW fliers, while another parent said her son is more confident and now he’s not easily pressured by peers to experiment with alcohol.  In addition, the Basketball Director reported that SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness provided a more educational approach to health and wellness which includes education on staying away from alcohol/drugs and how it affects an athlete’s body.  We are excited about the implementation of the SPORT PPW program in our agency. We plan to continue to provide services in the hope that more and more youth can live a viable and healthy lifestyle.” 

    Gary Coney MS CAP MH Registered Intern, Prevention Supervisor, Drug Abuse Treatment Association, Inc., Mangonia Park, FL

  • InShape Prevention Plus Wellness

    “We have been very pleased with the InShape Prevention Plus Wellness program…and we are excited for next year! I feel it is very important to reach this demographic of young adults and there are very few quality programs out there that address this age group.  

    That is why we are so pleased with InShape Prevention Plus Wellness, along with the fact that your customer service and relationship with the providers are excellent. I never hear from any of the other vendors that we purchase curriculums from, but I regularly communicate with you and it makes everything much smoother. Thank you for that added personal service.” 

    Kristinia Love, Morgan County Substance Abuse Council (MCSAC), Martinsville, IN    

    “We are pleased with InShape Prevention Plus Wellness.  Our young people love it.  Excellent EBP.” 

    Dr. Elliott Butler, Morris Brown College, Atlanta, GA


  • More Provider Feedback

    “Chudley is very friendly and accommodating. I appreciate having this online (training) format and his outgoing positive demeanor. I love the program and CANNOT WAIT to begin implementing. I think I may start this summer rather than in the fall. Inspired by the ease and positive outcomes of the program.” 

    Carrie McKinley, Pend Oreille County Counseling Services Newport, WA

    “Thank you so much!  I have been checking out your website almost daily.  Very helpful to a new prevention specialist!  Thank you again.”

    Monica Drake, San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, San Antonio, TX 

    “We implement the SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) program in our after school, summer youth, and recreational programs. Since we have 3 versions of the program, we could reach out to children and youth from age of 8 to 18. I personally think that this is a good program because it is informational and flexible. It allows providers to have different arrangements to complete the program. Most of the participants show improvements in posttests regarding sleeping time and eating habits.” 

    Pam Ng, Immigrant Social Services, Inc.
    New York NY 

    “We have really enjoyed implementing the SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness program, especially in church youth group settings. The students have been engaged and interested in the material and it has given them a great foundation for prevention.”
