This study aimed to investigate the role of educational alienation, loneliness, and high-risk behaviors in adolescents. This was a correlational study.

One hundred and twenty students were selected through the multistage cluster random sampling, and they completed the Questionnaires of high-risk behavior (Mohammadi-Zadeh et al 2008), the school alienation scale (Johnson, 2005), and loneliness (DiTommasso et al, 2004). Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson’s correlation, and hierarchical regression. Results showed that there were significant positive relationships between alienation, romantic loneliness, social loneliness, family loneliness, and high-risk behaviors. Regression analysis also showed that 45 % of variance in high-risk behavior explained by school alienation and 28 % of variance in high-risk behaviors explained by loneliness.
