Implementing an evidence-based program like Too Good for Drugs or TGFV A Peaceable Place / TGFV Social Perspectives is an exciting enterprise that requires organization, planning, and commitment from all stakeholders within the community, implementation sites, and families.
We built this Implementation Center, in collaboration with the University of South Florida's Institute for Translational Research Education in Adolescent Drug Abuse (ITRE), to illustrate the components and phases of implementation as identified by the National Implementation Research Network to help you maximize student outcomes and achieve a high-quality implementation of Too Good.
Whether you are required to monitor fidelity of implementation by your agency, district, or other funding organization or you choose to do so to meet local or organization-based commitments, we can guide you through each phase of implementation.
Phase 2: Program Installation

Preparing your site(s) to launch Too Good requires an examination and strengthening of the structural and functional components necessary to deliver Too Good consistently with its design and fidelity model.
At the Installation Phase, you will:
Phase 3: Initial Implementation
Once you have installed Too Good, you are ready to launch with your first cohort of facilitators and students. During the Initial Implementation Phase, you will assess your implementation design and systems. All of the planning and staff development performed in the Installation Phase will be tested in a pilot delivery of the program to practice delivering the Too Good program to students, practice assessing the fidelity of your Too Good implementation, and resolve any challenges specific to your site.
During the Initial Implementation Phase:
Phase 4: Full Implementation
Once your staff development and organizational structures are operational and working together to monitor and support your Too Good delivery, your Implementation Team will work with your sites to assure fidelity of implementation and prepare all teams to achieve the anticipated outcomes. You will assess the fidelity of your Too Good implementation again and, this time, report process indicators and student outcomes.
In the Full Implementation Phase:
Phase 5: Program Sustainability
Ensuring a sustainable implementation is essential to achieve lasting effects of your efforts to implement an EBP like Too Good. Achieving a high level of fidelity of implementation and quality across all delivery sites is key to sustainability.
