Introduction: Narcotic and  psychedelic  drugs abuse has become a very important and dangerous social issue not only due to its adverse effects, but also due to its negative consequences for society, and poses serious risks to the health of individuals and society.
Method: The current research was a comparative study, and the statistical population included two groups: 150 people in the experimental group, who were criminal addicts and they were in prison for committing a crime; the comparison group also included 150 addicts who had referred to addiction treatment centers and they had never committed any crimes. A questionnaire was used to collect the data. In order to analyze the questionnaire data and test the hypotheses, independent T-test and Chi-square correlation coefficients were used.
Findings: There was a relationship between the type of drugs used (industrial and traditional) and crime, but there was no relationship between the type of drugs used and the type of crime. The results showed that there is a relationship between the duration of addiction and the history of crime, as well as the gender of the criminals and the type of crime. According to the results of the study, there is a significant difference between criminal addicts and non-criminal addicts in terms of economic status, self-control, and differential association (associating with criminal friends).
Discussion: Delinquent behaviors due to addiction are inevitable, and the criminal acts of addicts and those related to other drug-related crimes such as smuggling, carrying, storing, etc.  are very large and varied.
