Background: The aim of this study was to compare the attachment styles of persons with or without substance use disorders. Materials and methods: Two hundred and forty volunteers (120 patients, 120 controls) were included in this study. All participants were asked to complete Substance Use Disorders Questionnaire (SUDQ) and Adult Attachment Inventory (AAI). Analysis of the data involved both descriptive and inferential statistics including means, standard deviations, t-tests, Pearson's correlation coefficients, and regression analysis. Results: The results revealed a significant difference between attachment styles of the patients with substance, (opioid), use disorders and controls. Secure and insecure attachment styles had significant negative and positive correlations, respectively, with opioid dependency. Conclusion: Attachment styles of patients with substance use disorders with opioid abuse are influenced by processes of family interactions, social control, affection regulation and self-efficacy.
