The above-mentioned questionnaire was filled out before and after intervention. The obtained data  was fed into SPSS software (V: 16) using. Independent t-test .and paired t-test were used for analysis and P<0.05 was taken as the significant level.

Results:  There were no significant differences between the two groups in pre-test regarding their attitude about drug abuse (P=.20%). Mean score variance from pre-test to post-test in the intervention group decreased, but in the control group, it showed a slight increase. This means that the intervention reduced the positive attitude towards drugs, but the changes were not statistically significant (p=0.57). Besides, among ten factors decisive in an individual’s attitude about addiction, only group cognitive therapy  was able  to decrease mean points of an individual’s attitude about drug abuse .. Significantly (P = 0.04).

Conclusion: It was found that group cognitive therapy education about opium  addict complicationsdidn`t have a significant effect on the attitude of the students with addicted fathers. Thus, a change of adolescents’ attitude requires more research.
