Objective: The present study was an attempt to assess a model of important antecedents of attitude towards drug addiction in order to gain a more complete understanding of this construct. This model examines the role of family cohesion, personality traits, peer attachment, altruism, and social support in attitudes towards drug addiction. Method: The study sample included 570 people from Tehran University students selected through convenient sampling. The research instruments included NEO-Personality Inventory (Short Form), Social Support Scale, Family Scale, New Friendship Scale, Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment. The proposed model was evaluated by using Structural equation modeling. Results: Based on the results, the indexes enjoyed acceptable goodness of fits. Family cohesion and personality traits had direct and indirect effects on attitudes towards drug addiction while peer attachment, altruism, and social support had a significant direct effect on attitudes towards drug addiction. Conclusion: These findings were consonant with those of the previous research and could explain attitudes towards drug addiction.
