Drug abuse has high co-morbidity with mental disorders, thus, controlling and treating it requires multimodal treatment intervention. This cross sectional study evaluates personality traits of 67 ÏV heroin abusers in Kashan Prison. The utilized instruments included two parts: a demographic questionnaire and MMPÏ. The data obtained from the questionnaires were statistically analyzed by using Fisher exact test. Fifty (%74/62) participants suffered from abnormal personality traits. Most of them were single and less than 30 years of age. Prominent personality traits were antisocial and depressed. There was a significant relation between abnormal personality traits and educational levels.
