Introduction: One of the most important social harms is drug addictive disorders. The present study was conducted aiming to investigate the effectiveness of dialectic behavioral therapy on the temptation of drug (opiate, met-amphetamine) users.
Material and methods: The statistical population of the study included men with addiction to opium, Heroin, sheereh [boiled and refined opium residue] and glass referring to the addiction withdrawal and therapy centers in the town of Shahreza. In order to administer intervention training sessions, 45 drug users were selected through non-probable available sampling method and put into experimental and control groups. 15 individuals were put into opiate drug experimental group, 15 into glass experimental method and 15 into the control group. The applied instrument was Beck’s questionnaire of tempting beliefs. The research design was semi-experimental with pretest, posttest and control group type. After conducting 11 sessions (ninety-minutes) of group teaching of dialectic behavioral therapy, the achieved data were analyzed through covariance method.
Findings: the results showed that teaching independent variable was effective on drug (opiate, met-amphetamine) users while there was not a significant difference between the two experimental groups in case of the effectiveness of therapeutic intervention (p>0.05). The difference between both experimental groups with the control group was significant (p>0.05).
Conclusion: Teaching dialectic behavioral therapy can be employed besides medication in treating temptation of men with drug addiction.
