Introduction: As the key element of each family, females play a pivotal role in the mental health of the family and the community. Females, more every other family member, suffer from the consequences of substance abuse. The current study aimed at investigating the effect of group logo therapy on resilience of spouses of male substance abusers and consequently improving mental health in them and their families.
Methods: The current clinical trial with a pre-test, post-test, and one-month follow-up design and a control group was conducted on the spouses of male substance abusers referring to private addiction treatment centers in Langroud, Iran; of which 33 subjects were randomly allocated to two experimental (n = 17) and control groups (n = 16). The experimental group received eight 90-minute sessions of group logo therapy with a six-day interval. The control group received no intervention during this period. Then, the two groups were re-evaluated for the resilience score. The Connor and Davidson resilience questionnaire was used as a pre-test, post-test, and one-month follow-up data collection form. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and repeated measure ANOVA with SPSS version 21.
Results: The results generally demonstrated that the effect of group logo therapy on resilience of the subjects in the experimental group was significantly higher than that of the control group (P < 0.0001).
Conclusions: The results of the current study were consistent with those of other similar studies indicating the effectiveness of group logo therapy in increasing the resilience of spouses of male substance abusers.
