Abstract

Objective: Throughout recent years, wide spread substance abuse in both genders, especially in women, has been increasingly on the rise in Iran. This is a serious matter. There are no solid and accurate statistics on female drug abusers yet. According to the World Drug Report (2014), the highest amount of methamphetamine consumption has been observed in Mexico, the USA, China, Thailand, and Iran. Despite global concerns in the matter, it is difficult to estimate the exact number of amphetamine consumers.
Method: This descriptive cross-sectional study aimed to examine the socio-demographic profile and substance abuse patterns in woman stationed at three Detox and Rehab Centres in Tehran. The statistical society at this centre includes 112 female patients. In this study, a questionnaire designed by the team of SOS-Enterprise.
