Objective: People may deny stress to get rid of it. In this case, they tend to exhibit high-risk behaviors. Inability to solve problems and emotional conflicts leads to high-risk behavior in addicts. This study was designed to investigate the relationship between risky behavior history (prison records and drug injection history) and emotion regulation in methamphetamine abusers.

Materials & Methods: In this case-control study, 60 methamphetamine users (13 people with prisons records and 11 people with drug injection history) were selected purposefully from persons who had been admitted to convenient treatment centers (MMT center, addiction treatment camp and self-help groups and Narcotics Anonymous). Demographic data and risky behavior history were gathered. The ‘Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire’ (CERQ) was used to assess emotion regulation. Data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA).

Results: The findings revealed no significant difference in CERQ subscales between the groups.

Conclusion: There was no significant relationship between emotion regulation and risky behavior such as prison records and drug injection history in methamphetamine users.
