About the Strategic Prevention Framework

All CADCA training is based upon SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) Model, which consists of 5 steps, Assessment, Capacity, Planning, Implementation and Evaluation.

Capacity

After completing a community assessment, coalitions must build the capacity needed to develop and carry out a comprehensive community plan to address the local conditions and root causes that contribute to the impaired driving problems they have identified.

Planning

During the Planning stage, coalitions develop comprehensive, logical, data-driven plans to use the capacity they have built to target the impaired driving conditions identified through the assessment phase.

Implementation

The strategic and action plan is rolled out during the Implementation phase. During this time, the coalition takes care to ensure that the selected best practices are implemented with fidelity to the original design or with appropriate adaptation that fits the community but stays true to the research basis of the intervention.

Evaluation

Evaluation of efforts to reduce impaired driving help the coalition improve its work, coordinate more effectively, and be accountable to participants, funders, and the community.
