Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the role of mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotional memory in predicting addiction relapse and adherence to treatment in substance abusers. Method: This research is a correlation study. The research population included all the patients referring to substance abuse treatment centers in the first half of 2014. The number of 197 substance abusers in addiction treatment centers of Ardabil was selected through convinience sampling method. General Adherence Scale, Relapse Prediction Scale, Freiburg Mindfulness Inventory, Distress Tolerance Scale, and Emotional Memory Test were used for data collection. Results: The results of Pearson correlation indicated that addiction relapse and adherence to treatment have a significant relationship with mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotional memory. The results of multiple regression analysis showed that 35.8 percent of relapse prediction variance can be explained by mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotional memory in substance abusers. Similarly, the results showed that 33.5 percent of adherence to treatment variance can be explained by mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotional memory in substance abusers.
