This investigation used the Health Belief Model (HBM) to examine perceived barriers and benefits college students hold concerning medical amnesty. Researchers employed a cross-sectional research design with 369 students completing the survey (97% response rate). A path analysis revealed that college students are more likely to seek help during an alcohol overdose when they perceive the situation as life-threatening with few barriers. Results reveal that the HBM is useful in explaining intentions to utilize medical amnesty.
