Objective: The aim of the present research was to determine the fitness of the model of causal relationships of attachment styles, loneliness, and self-esteem with addiction potential. Method: The current research was a descriptive-correlational one. From among all universities in the city of Kerman, 596 students were selected via multistage cluster sampling method; and responded to Hazan and Shaver’s Adult Attachment Scale (AAS); DiTommaso, Brannen, and Best’s Social and Emotional Loneliness Scale for Adults (short form); Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem Scale; and Zargar’s Iranian Addiction Potential Scale (IAPS). Path analysis through AMOS software was used to evaluate the model. Results: The attained model enjoyed proper fit indexes. From among the variables, ambivalent attachment style has a direct and significant effect on addiction potential; however, it had a reverse and significant relationship through the mediation role of self-esteem. Conclusion: from among attachment styles, only    ambivalent attachment style has both a direct and an indirect relationship with addiction potential under the mediating role of loneliness and self-esteem.
