The current research was performed aiming to train spirituality based on Islamic teachings on resilience and social adjustment in substance-dependent individuals. This study was an experimental research conducted in the form of pretest-posttest with control group. The population under study consisted of substance-dependent individuals in the Methadone Addiction Treatment Center of the city of Ghorve (Nikoosalamat) in 2013. At first, the sample size included 90 substance-dependent individuals referred to the addiction treatment clinic who were selected based on simple random sampling. Then, the number of 30 individuals who had received the lowest scores in the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) and the Social Adjustment Scale (SAS) were selected and randomly divided into two experimental and control groups. The experimental group received 9 two-hour spirituality sessions, but the control group received no training. The CD-RISC and the SAS were applied to collect data, and covariance analysis was used to analyze the data. The findings showed that the mean of social adjustment scores in the posttest of the experimental group was significantly lower than that of posttest scores in the control group and, in other words, adjustment was increased. Also, the mean of resiliency scores in the posttest of the experimental group was significantly higher than the mean of posttest scores in the control group. It can be concluded that the training of spirituality with emphasis on the teachings of the Islamic religion can be used to significantly increase the level of resilience and social adjustment in substance-dependent individuals.
