The purpose of this study is to investigate the personality traits of drug abusers as an effective factor in following up the treatment, completing the treatment period or giving up the treatment procedure.

The length of the treatment was 28 days (4 weeks) and treatment adherence was to complete the process of the therapy. Personality traits were measured by Cloninger's Treatment and Character Inventory in the dimension of treatment and character. Data were analyzed by multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA).
Results: The finding showed that participants who completed their treatment period had high scores in harm avoidance and persistence dimension and those who failed to complete the treatment period had high scores in novelty seeking dimension.
Discussion and Conclusion: The finding showed that participants who completed their treatment period had high scores in harm avoidance and persistence dimension and those who failed to complete the treatment period had high scores in novelty seeking dimension.
