A total sample of 118 male and female students was selected using convenience sampling method. The addiction potential scale and the health literacy questionnaire were used to collect data. Results: The results showed that there were significant negative relationships between addiction readiness and health literacy components (access, reading skill, comprehension, evaluation, decision making, and information use). Also, the results of regression analysis showed that the total score of health literacy could significantly and negatively predict 18% of the variance of addiction readiness. Among the components of health literacy, comprehension and decision making and information use could significantly and negatively predict 21% of the variance of addiction readiness.
