The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral group therapy on self-injury and self-coherence of substance abusers. The research design was a pre-test and post-test with the control group. In this research, 36 substance abusers who were referred to rehabilitation treatment centers in Arak city were randomly assigned to the experimental group and the control group. For data collection in pre-test and post-test, self-injury questionnaire was employed. For the experimental group, the cognitive-behavioral group therapy was performed in seven sessions, and no intervention was performed in the control group. To analyze the data, multivariate analysis of covariance was conducted. The results showed that the cognitive-behavioral group therapy had a significant impact on self-injury. Regarding the findings, it can be concluded that cognitive-behavioral group therapy is effective in reducing self-injury behaviors and increasing self-coherence and cognitive-behavioral group therapy can be used as a treatment method for this group. Cognitive process plays an important role in the formation of inappropriate behaviors, self-injury behaviors, and self-coherence. So by recognizing the cognitive process of substance abusers, we can help them to improve their lives.
