Welcome to SPORT 2 Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW)! SPORT 2 PPW is an easy to use brief intervention for professionals, peer leaders and others who want to prevent substance abuse and promote protective wellness lifestyles and positive identities among youth.
SPORT 2 PPW is an evidence-informed intervention adopted from the evidence-based SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness program listed on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development and other evidence-based program registries.
