Objective: The current research aimed to investigate the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy in marital conflict and marital adjustment among addicts. Method: The population of this study consisted of 100 addicts in Drug Treatment Methadone Therapy Center (Nikoosalamat) in Ghorveh city in 2013. This study employed a quasi-experimental research design with pre-test and post-test. A sample size of 30 married addicts was selected via convenience sampling method. Then, they were randomly assigned to two experimental and control groups. The experimental group received 13 behavioral-cognitive psychotherapy sessions according to Michael Frey's instructions (2005), while the control group received no intervention. For data collection, Spanier's 32-item Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS) and Marital Conflict Questionnaire (MCQ) were administered. Results: The results showed that the mean score of marital adjustment post-test in the experimental group was significantly higher than that of the control group. In addition, the mean score of marital conflict post-test in the experimental group was found to be significantly lower than that of the control group. Conclusion: Cognitive behavioral therapy appears to be effective in promoting marital adjustment and reducing marital conflict among addicts.
