SPORT programme achieves “promising” rating

The SPORT programme, which integrates physical activity and other health-enhancing habits with substance abuse prevention, has been rated “promising” by the US Promising Practices Network (PPN). According to a new PPN programme summary, a rigorous evaluation of SPORT showed that participants in the programme were less likely to start using alcohol and significantly more likely to exhibit self-control related to alcohol when compared to a control group.

An article about SPORT was featured in the spring 2012 issue of Better: Evidence-based Education, which focused on mind and body.
