Abstract

Background: Addiction has nowadays become one of the most serious problems of human society, which leads to the emergence of poverty and unemployment and, more importantly, the emergence of frequent occupational, social and legal problems.The main purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of behavior-dialog therapy in changing the level of negative and positive meta-cognitive beliefs among addicted men in Khorramabad. Materials and Methods: This quasi-experimental study was carried out using pretest-posttest design with the control group. The research sample consisted of 40 subjects selected among addicted men in Khorramabad, Iran. They were randomly assigned to the experimental (of behavior-dialog therapy) and the control groups. At the intervention stage, the experimental group was trained in the life-style therapy for 8 sessions. The Wales metacognitive beliefs questionnaire (2000) was used for data collection in pre-test and post-test phases for both the experimental and the control groups. The data were analyzed using the multivariate analysis of MANCOVA. Results: The results of covariance analysis showed a significant difference between the two groups (p <0.01). The findings indicated that behavior-dialog therapy of the health care system is effective in changing the level of positive and negative financial implications.
