  Abstract

  Background & Aims: It is aimed to analyze the individual specifications of addicts who referred to the treatment centers of Tehran in 2008.

  Materials & Methods: The population of this analytical-descriptive survey was all addicts who attended to the treatment centers located in Tehran. Through random sampling from all attendance to Rehabilitating Drug Addicts Units and NGOs, 256 people constitute the final population of this study. Data gathering tools were questionnaires comprising demographic plus MMPI questions. To analyze the data, SPSS version 11 was used .

  Results: The findings of the study show that 19.1% of addicts were jobless, 38% lessees, 2.3% illiterate, 60.5% single, and 57.8% of them had an income of less than 2,000,000 Rials, reflecting the fact that unemployment has no relation with the tendency to addiction. In contrast, better economic status and higher educational degree had a significant correlation with tendency to addiction which reflects failure of social supporting institutional programs. Based on MMPI, the amount of exposition to danger in addicts consists of 7.81% in mania, 28.12% Schizophrenia, 12.5% in paranoia, and 33.98% in unsociability, 12.5% hysterias, 57.42% in depression and 22.26% in self assumption of illness, reflecting disorder in their personality.

  Conclusion: According to MPI, if the results of depression, unsociability and Schizophrenia among addicts were high and the L and K rates were Low, treatment and consulting services would be advised.
