The present study was carried out aiming at investigating the efficacy of cognitive therapy based on mindfulness on self-efficacy of addicts under treatment. This research has a quasi-experimental design and enjoys a pre-test, post-test, and a control group. The research population included all addicts under treatment in registered treatment and rehabilitation centers in Bojnourd, a city north east of Iran. To prepare the sample, 100 individuals were selected at random. They completed Sherer & Maddux General Self-Efficacy Scale. The final sample consisted of 30 individuals with lowest scores in the GSES. The subjects were randomly assigned into two same-sized experimental and control groups. The results were analyzed using descriptive and deductive statistical methods (covariance analysis). Findings suggested that there is a meaningful difference in post-test average scores of GSES (after counting for pre-test effect) in the two groups. In other words, training individuals with mindfulness-based cognitive therapy resulted in the enhancement of self-efficacy in the experimental group compared to the control group on the basis of results in the post-test. The results implied that mindfulness-based cognitive therapy leaves a positive effect on self-efficacy of patients with addiction under treatment.
