Best way would be to create a table that will hold the words you wish to filter. Then create a stored procedure that checks for the words.
something very simple like

create table InvalidWords(
	id int identity,
	sword varchar(32)
)
	
------
create procedure ValidateWords @Message varchar(8000), @status int out
as
begin
  declare @id int, @word varchar(32)
  set @status = 0
  set @id = 1
  
  while exists(select 1 from InvalidWords where id >= @id)
  begin
    select @id = ID, @word = sword from InvalidWords where id >= @id
    set @id = @id + 1 
    
    if CHARINDEX(@word, @Message, 1) >= 1
    BEGIN
		set @status = 1
		break
    END
  end
end

In your code, you could do

BEGIN
     SET NOCOUNT ON

    DECLARE @status int
     ValidateWords(@Message, @Status)
     
     IF @Status = 1
                @ReturnString = 'Please do not use vulgar words'
     ELSE

guess should be making a table to store and retrieve it,

But what if just without the method,

only by using this stored procedure to filter several words

That would become a little bit messy and hard to maintain, think adding a new word to your check.

You will end up with multiple conditions, as many as the words you would like to filter eg

if (CHARINDEX('xxx', @Message, 1)  >=1) OR (CHARINDEX('yyy', @Message, 1)  >=1) OR ..........
