Abstract:   (620 Views)
A varied range of psychological interventions has been suggested to treat substance use disorders, particularly for amphetamine users. The purpose of psychological treatments are to help drug dependents understand the detrimental effects of drug use, recognize their personal values and strengths, and overwhelm social stigma and self-stigma to involve in specialized individual or group interventions. The current study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of matrix treatment on depression and the temptation to use in amphetamine dependent individuals. The research method was quasi-experimental with a pre-test-post-test design with a control group. The statistical population of the research consists of 1,400 men dependent to amphetamines, self-referred to addiction treatment centers in Tehran. Participants were 40 people whom selected by accessible sampling method and randomly assigned to control and experimental groups (20 people in each group). Consumption temptation scale and Beck depression inventory were used for collecting data. Results revealed that the matrix treatment had a significant effect on depression and temptation in consumption. According to our results, it can be concluded that matrix treatment can be used as a complementary drug treatment in amphetamine dependent individuals.
