Abstract

Adolescence is considered an important period for the prevalence of risky behaviors due to adolescents’ self-centeredness and wrong understanding of their own behaviors. This period is followed by widespread physical, psychological, and social changes. The present study aims to examine high-risk behaviors and behavioral disorders in adolescents with addicted and non-addicted fathers at public school of Zabol in the academic year 2016-2017. The present study is a descriptive research that falls within the category of scientific comparative research. Iranian Adolescents Risk-taking Scale, Rutter Behavioral Disorder Questionnaire, and a demographic questionnaire were used for data collection purposes. The statistical data were analyzed using SPSS Version18. A total of 310 students were placed in two 155-participant groups, namely the case and control groups. The mean value of participants’ age equaled 15.48 years. The highest and lowest rates of risky behaviors pertained to smoking and sexual relations. The results of independent t-test indicated no significant difference between the two groups in terms of drug abuse, violence, and risky driving (P<0.005). The findings of this study suggest the need for the development of prevention programs and treatment interventions in children with addicted fathers. Hence, it is suggested that prevention programs be developed and implemented in order to prevent the incidence of behavioral disorders and high-risk behaviors. © 2017, Indian Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology.
