Introduction: Considering the increasing prevalence of substance abuse disorder and its accompanying violence and aggression among adolescents and youth in recent years, issues such as self-control and emotional regulation in people with substance abuse disorder is imperative. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of integrated matrix therapy on self-control and emotional regulation in methamphetamine abusers.

Thirty cases were selected by convenience sampling method. Research tools include Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (CERQ; Garnefski, Kraaij, Spinhoven, 2001) and Tangney's Self-Control Scale (SCS) (2004). After pre-test, the experimental group received integrated matrix therapy in 24 forty-five minute sessions (two sessions per week). Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, multivariate analysis of covariance, ANCOVA and SPSS software. Results: Integrated matrix therapy increased self-control and emotional regulation in the experimental group compared to the control group (P<0.05). Also, the effect of integrated matrix therapy on emotional regulation in methamphetamine abusers is about 36. Conclusion: It seems that integrated matrix therapy has a positive effect on self-control and emotional regulation in methamphetamine abusers.
