Growing interest in issues of attachment, sociocultural, psychological, and above all clinical perspectives is also reflected in the emergence of research on "attachment style and parental parenting style in referrals to addiction treatment centers."


This was a cross-sectional study. Three health centers were selected randomly from among the health centers of Neyshabur city in 2015-2016 year. The sampling was done so that all individuals who had the characteristics of the research unit and had the consent to participate in the study were justified by the researcher and completed questionnaire form. We used Chi-square, one-way analysis of variance, Mann-Whitney, and Kruskal-Wallis tests.


In the present study, safe attachment scores in children with healthy parents were significantly more than children with addicted parents.


Addiction has an important role in reducing attachment to children, and because this decrease in attachment has dangerous consequences in child's life.
