What is Too Good?

Too Good is a family of comprehensive drug and violence prevention programs designed to mitigate risk factors and build protection against problem behaviors.

Social Emotional Learning

Too Good is a framework of social and emotional skills that develops goal-setting, decision-making, and effective communication skills.  Too Good also builds skills for peer pressure refusal, pro-social bonding, conflict resolution, and media literacy. 

Easy to Teach and Fun to Learn

Too Good’s interactive cooperative learning design promotes a spirited and engaging learning environment.  Games, role-plays, and thought-provoking activities bring the skills and concepts to life through a practical application approach that integrates well within the classroom environment.

Scripted lessons, detailed concept rationales, clearly established objectives, and lesson-planning tools make implementation easy and worry-free whether you are a classroom teacher, law enforcement professional, school counselor, social worker, or community health educator.


A comprehensive body of evidence demonstrates the positive effects of Too Good on emotional competency skills, decision-making ability, intentions to use illicit substances, substance use behavior, and intentions to engage in aggressive behavior. Too Good programs have demonstrated effectiveness in third party evaluations


The Too Good skill development model maximizes understanding and application through a deliberate phased design.  Each skill is introduced in a sequence of lessons that build the concepts of one skill to lay the foundation for the next.  Each skill is then reapplied in the drug-specific and conflict-specific lessons.  This comprehensive approach maximizes the protective effects of the skill set to address numerous risky behaviors with lasting effects.

Promotes Academic Achievement

Too Good promotes academic achievement through social emotional skill development, alignment with education standards and priorities, and healthy and supportive classroom management.  Together with an engaging interactive design, this comprehensive framework builds the basis for a safe, supportive, and respectful learning environment.
