Background and Objectives: Addiction is a disaster with social and psychological aspects that if remaining untreated and neglected it results in terrible consequences. The present study aimed to compare religious beliefs and impulsivity in normal and addicted individuals in Tehran, Iran.
Methods: This descriptive correlational study was performed on a total of 100 normal and addicted individuals referring to drug rehabilitation centers in Tehran within January 2019 to February 2019. The study participants were selected through the convenience sampling method. Data collection tools included a demographic questionnaire, Religious Attitudes Questionnaire, and Barratt Impulsiveness Inventory. The data were analyzed using SPSS software (version 21).
Results: The findings of the present showed that the total mean scores of the addicts’ religious attitudes and impulsivity factor were 57.87±13.48 and 65.32±11.93, respectively. In addition, the total mean values of the normal individuals’ religious attitudes and impulsivity factor were 13.74±5.76 and 64.92±6.87, respectively. Moreover, there was a significant difference in the religious attitudes of the addicted and normal individuals (t=3.24; P=0.002).
Conclusion: Strengthening religious attitudes among drug users causes them to display behaviors related to their wellbeing and justify them leading to a significant improvement in their quality of life.
