Welcome to Opioid Prevention Plus Wellness! Opioid PPW programs are quick and easy to use evidence-informed screening and brief interventions for professionals, peer leaders and others who want to prevent opioid use disorder (OUD) and other substance abuse and promote protective wellness lifestyles and identities among high risk populations.
Opioid PPW programs recommend participants with opioid use disorder receive medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and recovery and provides critical anti-stigma messages and images related to OUD. They come in several versions customized to the needs of specific high risk populations such as men involved in the criminal justice system, veterans and blue collar workers, pregnant and postpartum women, and adolescents.
Opioid PPW programs are adopted from the InShape Prevention Plus Wellness prevention program which has undergone rigorous research evaluating its effectiveness for preventing young adult substance abuse 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.
