Abstract
Drug abuse impacts quality of life significantly. Thus, the present study is designed to compare the quality of life of adolescents and young adults who have voluntarily referred to addiction treatment centres at different time slots of uponadmission, and one, four and eight months after maintenance treatment. The Study is a longitudinal study on 141 of adolescents and young adults who had referred to various addiction treatment centres throughout Isfahan voluntarily. The population was selected through availability sampling method and 137 of adolescents and young adults continued the research till the end. The SF36 Questionnaire was used. The collected data was analyzed using statistical indices and SPSS software. The obtained results showed that the average of quality of life total score was sequential and not the same in the four time slots under study. According to the post-hoc test, the total quality of life score upon-admission was significantly different from one, four and eight months after maintenance treatment. However, quality of life at one month was not significantly different to that at four and eight months after the treatment; also, quality of life at four months after the treatment was not significantly different to that at eight months after. According to the results obtained in the present study, it can be concluded that the quality of life of adolescents and young adults referring to addiction treatment centres increases one month after the treatment; nevertheless, it is worth to note that the degree of quality of life increase in four and eight months after the treatment is not as much as that in one month after the treatment. That is, the degree of quality of life increase is not that significant in four and eight months after the treatment in comparison with one month after the treatment. Thus, in addition to maintenance treatment, other aspects of quality of life, especially social, support and social network should be taken into consideration for a successful treatment and avoiding recurrence of addiction in this sensitive segment of society.
