The present study was conducted with the aim of predicting the survival and dropout of addiction treatment based on sensation seeking and impulsivity. The present study was descriptive-correlational. The statistical population of this study was all addicts in Ardabil city that came to one of the centers for addiction treatment and 349 of them were selected based on Krejcy and Morgan tables and multi-stage cluster sampling. Data was collected using the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale and Arnett inventory of sensation seeking. The discriminate function analysis results showed that sensation seeking (novel and intense) and impulsivity (attentional, motor, and non-planning impulsiveness) was the ability to predict the survival and dropout of addicts from addiction treatment interventions. Therefore, it is concluded that sensation seeking and impulsivity have a negative correlation with survival, and the amount of these attributes in the addicted person is low, and leads to long-term survival. On the other hand, the amount of impulsivity and sensation seeking in people who are out of treatment is significantly higher. Therefore, in clinics and camps, it is necessary to focus on mental and counseling on reducing impulsivity and sensation seeking.
