Objective: The present study aimed to investigate the role of anxiety sensitivity and attentional control in predicting the tendency toward addiction in youth. Method: The present study is correlational and 150 students were selected as participants of study through multistage cluster sampling. The attentional control questionnaire (Derry berry & Reed, 2002), Anxiety Sensitivity (Peterson & Reiss, 1987) and the Readiness Scale for Drug Abuse (Zargar, 2007) questionnaires were used to collect data. The research data were analyzed through Pearson Correlation Coefficient formula and regression. Results: The results showed that there is a significant correlation between attentional control and the lack of cognitive control with the tendency to addiction. Conclusion: According to the findings, it can be concluded that in addition to social and biological factors, psychological factors, such as attentional control and anxiety sensitivity, are influential in the tendency and readiness of individuals to drug addiction.
