Objective: The increasing tendency to drug use is one of the major social problems particularly because the age of drug users has reduced and it has been spread among youth. In this regard, many efforts have been made to investigate the relationship between substance abuse and personality-related constructs. This study aimed to investigate the relationship of personality traits and coping strategies with drug abstinence self-efficacy in addicted youth at Marvdasht. Method: This research was a descriptive-correlation study and the addicts under treatment at 7 Addiction treatment centers of Marvdasht city constituted its statistical population. From among this population, 116 participants were chosen by convenience sampling and in a voluntary fashion. These participants were evaluated in terms of the research variables by means of NEO Personality Inventory, Drug Abstinence Self-efficacy Scale, and Lazarus Ways of Coping Questionnaire. Results: The results showed that drug abstinence self-efficacy was negatively correlated with neuroticism (one of the dimensions of personality) and positively correlated with the dimension o resiliency. Problem-focused coping strategies are positively associated with the personality dimension o resiliency and emotion-focused coping strategies are negatively correlated with neuroticism dimension. In addition, drug abstinence self-efficacy has a positive relationship with problem-focused coping strategies. Conclusion: Different personality dimensions, different levels of self-efficacy, and choice of coping styles and model are among the effective factors in tendency or lack of tendency to drug use and addiction.
