Background: Substance abuse of a family member can be effective as an observational model regarding the tendency to substance abuse in other family members. The present study aimed to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) intervention in distress tolerance and sensation-seeking in adolescents with an addicted parent in Ahvaz.
Methods: This was a pre-test-post-test clinical trial study with a control group. The statistical population of the research comprised all adolescents with an addicted parent in Ahvaz City, Iran, in the school year 2019-2020. In this research, 30 adolescents with an addicted parent were selected through convenience sampling and equally divided into experimental and control groups (n=15). The distress tolerance scale and the sensation-seeking questionnaire were used to collect data. The experimental group underwent MBSR intervention for eight 60-minute sessions. The control group received no intervention. The data were analyzed using analysis of covariance through SPSS software, version 23.
Results: The results suggested that MBSR was effective in increasing distress tolerance and reducing sensation seeking of adolescents with an addicted parent in Ahvaz (P<0.001).
Conclusion: Accordingly, this treatment can be used to reduce distress and sensation seeking in adolescents with an addicted parent and decrease their stress.
