Welcome to InShape (Alcohol/Drug) Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW)! InShape PPW is a quick and easy to use screening and brief intervention for prevention and health professionals, peer leaders and others who want to prevent substance use and promote protective wellness behaviors and positive identities among young adults.
InShape PPW has undergone rigorous research evaluating its effectiveness for preventing young adult substance use and increasing healthy habits. It is listed as an evidence-based program on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development and other evidence-based registries. Furthermore, it utilizes an evidence-based practices screening and brief intervention format recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
InShape PPW is the only single-session substance use prevention program designed to increase wellness-enhancing behaviors including physical activity, healthy eating, getting adequate sleep, and practicing stress control. It can be implemented in any setting including college campus, community, health care, military, sports, recreation and more.
InShape PPW is founded on the Behavior-Image Model, a marketing-related framework that targets naturally motivating positive peer and desired future images to increase motivation for change and multiple health behavior goal setting which in turn increases self-regulation skills of participants.
InShape PPW takes less than 60 minutes to implement, is highly flexible and can be used as a stand-alone intervention, or as an add-on component to other prevention, health, sports, fitness, recreation, education, intervention or treatment programs. While it was created as a universal prevention intervention, many organizations use it as a selective and indicated prevention program for high risk populations.

- Screening young adults for their current health habits to increase awareness of their substance use and wellness behaviors;
- Providing feedback on those health habits and positive image messages cuing desired future images of young people and increasing motivation for change; and
- Presenting a goal plan and contract to have young adults set and monitor goals to avoid substance use and increase protective wellness behaviors increasing self-control skills.
