Welcome to SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness-High Risk for youth at high risk for substance use and other behavioral problems.  SPORT PPW-HR is a quick and easy to use selective and indicated prevention with wellness intervention for professionals, peer leaders and parents who want to promote resilient active, healthy and substance-abuse free lifestyles.  

SPORT PPW-HR was adopted from the original SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness universal prevention program developed with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and is listed as an evidence-based program on the federal government’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development and other evidence-based registries.     

SPORT PPW-HR is the country’s only single-session program designed to increase high risk youth wellness-enhancing behaviors including physical activity, sports participation, healthy eating, getting adequate sleep, and practicing stress control while avoiding alcohol, tobacco, e-cigarettes, prescription drug misuse, marijuana and illicit drug use.  

SPORT PPW-HR targets naturally motivating positive peer and desired future images to increase personal goal setting to improve multiple wellness habits and positive self-identity.  SPORT PPW-HR is highly flexible and can be used as a stand-alone program, or as an add-on component to other prevention, health, sports, fitness, recreation, education or intervention programs.    

The SPORT PPW-HR program was designed to help vulnerable youth look and feel more active, fit and healthy by having them:

  1. Identify wellness enhancing behaviors, along with drug use habits that interfere with reaching wellness behavior goals and positive self-images;
  2. Become aware of positive images of youth engaged in wellness promoting behaviors, and desired images of themselves in the future; and
  3. Make a commitment to set and monitor multiple goals to increase wellness promoting behaviors, while avoiding wellness harming substance use.
