Evaluation and Program Planning. 2004 May;27(2):135–49. Presents a planning model for sustaining program infrastructure and interventions within organizational, community, and state systems. The model utilizes a five step process and addresses factors known to inhibit sustainability efforts. The investigators developed this model through a systematic review of the literature and the application of concepts derived from a series of “think tanks” made up of key substance abuse prevention professionals. A sustainability action strategy and tools to assist in implementation are also presented.
