Introduction: Given that people with drug abuse have become one of the most important and widespread concerns of human societies today, it is becoming increasingly common for people with drug abuse to become familiar with personality traits. They can provide prevention and treatment for these people in the community, so this study aimed to compare personality traits, attachment styles, and metacognitive beliefs in substance abusers and normal people.
Methods: The method of this study is descriptive-analytic-causal-comparative. The sample consisted of 150 individuals, 75 normal people and 75 addicts who were selected by convenience and non-random sampling by referring to addiction treatment clinics. Measurement tools included the Five-Factor Personality Inventory (NEOPI-FF), the Collins and Reed Attachment Questionnaire (1990), and the Wright-Hutton & Wells Card Metacognition Questionnaire (1997). Independent T-test and Pearson correlation were used for data analysis.
Results: Findings of the study showed that the two dimensions of cognitive and uncontrollable thoughts were significantly different from the five dimensions of cognition in the two groups. . There was also a significant relationship between ambivalent insecure attachment style and neurotic personality traits and agreeableness.
Conclusion: Overall, the results showed a significant difference between personality traits, attachment styles and metacognitive beliefs in substance abusers and normal people.
