The present study aimed to evaluate the pattern of structural relations of mental rumination and worry to the prediction of the individuals’ relapse to stimulants mediated by self-control.


The method of the current research was descriptive-correlational of path analysis type. The statistical population of the study included all individuals using stimulants resident in rehabilitation and care centers of Tehran in 2021. Two hundred and fifty people were selected by cluster random sampling method. Data collection was performed through the self-control questionnaire, the prediction of individuals’ relapse to substance questionnaire, the mental rumination questionnaire, and the worry questionnaire. The path analysis test was used for data analysis.


The results showed that mental rumination and worry were positively associated with the prediction of individuals’ relapse to stimulants and self-control was negatively associated with the prediction of individuals’ relapse to substances. Mental rumination and worry had a significant direct effect, as well as a significant indirect effect through self-control, on the prediction of relapse to stimulant use.


The research findings indicated the appropriate fit of the research conceptual model. It is suggested that experts in the field of addiction pay special attention to reducing anxiety and mental rumination and increasing self-control of these individuals in identifying and analyzing the prediction of relapse to stimulants.
