There would also be a significant amount of patients consuming over the counter meds as a result of viewing these infomercials. Under what conditions might this idea be true?

The social influence model is the first model which is designed to increase adolescent’s ability to resist social influences to drink, smoke and use drug. The second models is designed to increase adolescent’s resistance to pro-substance use social influences, focusses primary attention on the development of cognitive-behavioral personal and social skills. 7.
