Accordingly, the purpose of this study was to predict the tendency to drug abuse based on academic alienation, negative academic emotions, and general self-efficacy in male students. Method: This study was descriptive-correlational and the statistical population of the present study was all male senior high school students in Rasht in the academic year 2019-2020. Among them, 200 students were selected by multi-stage cluster sampling. In this study, the Addiction Tendency Questionnaire (Weed et al., 1992), the Educational Alienation Questionnaire (Dillon & Grout, 1976), the General Self-Efficacy Scale (Schwartzer and Jerusalem, 1979), and the Achievement Emotion Questionnaire (Pekrun et al., 2005) were used. Results: Tendency to drug abuse had positive and significant relationships with academic alienation and negative academic emotions, and negative and significant relationship with general self-efficacy in students. Academic alienation, negative academic emotions, and general self-efficacy predicted 62% of the variance of tendency to drug abuse in students.
