Background and Objectives: Narcotics addiction is a chronic and relapsing  psychological disorder, which is associated with severe motivational disorders and loss of behavioural control. Addiction and abuse of narcotic substances have various predisposing factors in the areas of attitude, environment, and society. On the other hand, previous researches have shown that addiction causes transformation in the perception of social issues and type of attitude toward this problem. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between abuse of narcotic substances and psychological obstinacy, quality of life, and self-concept in the addicts.

Methods: This research was a correlational study. Statistical population included individuals covered by addiction withdrawal centers of Qom city, who were selected (250 subjects) by convenience sampling. Data collection was performed using drug screening, self-concept, psychological obstinacy and quality of life questionnaires. To analyse the data, Pearson correlation coefficient and regression tests, were used.

Results: There was a significant negative correlation at the 0.05 level, between narcotics abuse and psychological obstinacy (-0.531). On the other hand, there was a significant negative correlation at the 0.05 levels, between narcotics abuse and quality of life (0.285). Also, there was a significant negative correlation at the 0.05 levels, between narcotics abuse and self-concept (-0.475).

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that there is significant correlation (in 0.05 levels) between narcotics abuse and psychological obstinacy, life quality, and self-concept, and individuals with higher narcotic abuse have lower psychological obstinacy, quality of life, and self-concept.

Keywords: misuse of narcotics, psychological obstinacy, life quality and self-concept.
