During their ambulatory admission, 288(219 males and 69 females)patients were completed Eysenck's Personality Questionnaire (EPQ R/A) and Beck's Anxiety (BAI) and Depression Inventory (BDI).191 of them were in the group of heroin addicts and 97 of them in the group of recreate drug users identified by the DSM-IV classification.Their averaged age was 22, ranges from 14 to 44. Significantly higher levels of psychoticism, neuroticism, criminality and addiction, that were determined in the group of heroin addicts, were significantly correlated with the higher levels of anxiety and depression.Higher extraversion and social conformity were determined in the group of recreate drug users who still had disposition to resist and developing the addiction problem.
