This article presents a study describing the fidelity of implementation of an evidence-based program and its evolution over a period of 10 years. From this study, the authors establish links between the implementation of programs, their effects, and their sustainability and discuss some of the issues surrounding the measurement of fidelity of implementation. This discussion addresses elements that may influence the fidelity of implementation and the sustainability of the studied program, including adaptations made to it. The advantages and limitations of using a quantitative approach to the evaluation of implementation to produce a portrait of implementation are also presented.

Reported here is a first study of the implementation fidelity group intervention program for sexually abused adolescent girls, consisting of 18 sessions centered on 9 themes. Through systematic observation of the intervention protocol used with two groups of adolescents, the case study describes implementation fidelity and its evolution. Results show that the first group outperformed the second in terms of implementation adherence. Levels of participation were similar between groups but quality appears to have improved for the second group. The activities implemented lasted longer than planned in both groups. Results are discussed in light of the factors that promote fidelity and the debate between fidelity and adaptation.
