 The present research investigates the relationship between family factors and the students' attitude towards drugs. 863 (male and female) secondary school students were selected through randomized cluster sampling. They responded to the "Attitude towards Drugs Questionnaire" and "Family Factors Scale". The obtained data were analyzed using the Mann-Whitney U tests and Spearman's correlation coefficient. The results revealed that adolescents with addicted parents had more tendency towards drug abuse compared to the others. Feeling insecure at home, the students were more inclined to drug abuse. The students who had more educated parents had less inclination to drugs. Moreover, the higher the education of the father, the more students' negative feelings and attitudes towards the drugs.

On the other hand, there was no significant relationship between mother's education and students' attitude towards drug abuse. In addition, the increase of family income lead to the students' displaying more negative feelings towards drug abuse. However, no significant relationship was found between family income and students' inclination to drug abuse, or their unreal perceptions and feelings concerning the dangers of drug abuse.
