Purpose: The purpose of this study was to predict addiction potential based on intentional self-regulation and positive youth development  in highschool students in Kermanshah. Method: The research method was descriptive-correlational, and the statistical population included all high school students in Kermanshah. A sample of 198 people was selected through multi-stage cluster sampling. Participants completed  the positive  youth development scale (Goldhof et al., 2010), intentional self-regulation questionnaire (Freund and Balts, 2002) and addiction potential scale (Wade and Boucher, 1992) , then data were analyzed by SPSS version 25 software. Results: The results of simultaneous regression showed that intentional self-regulation and positive youth development could predict addiction potential. Conclusion: The results showed that there is a reverse and meaningful relationship between intentional self-regulation and positive youth development with addiction potential, as well as inentional self-regulation and positiv eyouth development  can predict addiction potential in high school students. These results show that self-regulation skills training and the implementation of positive youth development programs can reduce the tendency of adolescence to addiction
