CREDIBLE EVIDENCE EVALUATION 2 The source "The Roll of Traumatic Event History in Non-Medical Use of Prescription Drugs" examined different variables to conclude reasons for use of prescription drugs in teens. The study tries to show that different causes lead teens to abuse prescription drugs. The goal of the studies is to identify risk factors from traumatic events that lead to the drug abuse. To understand the underlying factors that cause the drug abuse and introduce procedures to prevent teens from using them. (McCauley et al., 2009) The researchers accomplish this goal by suggesting "Interventions for adolescents with history of violence exposure or PTSD should include treatment or prevention modules that specifically address NMUPD". Having mental health professionals who work with teens should assess them for NMUPD and to include that in their treatment. (McCauley et al., 2009) This study draws on the psychological concepts that negative reinforcements models as a link between traumatic life events and increased substance abuse. According to the study, it shows that the teens were using to reduce the traumatic effects by self-medicating. (McCauley et al., 2009, p. 89-93) By using credible sources, it shows that the future claims in the action plan will be valid with relevant source information.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
