Abstract:   (1291 Views)
Introduction: Prostitution has a strong relationship with substance use. In addition, lifestyle has a key role in prevalence of social problems such as prostitution and addiction. Objective: The current study aimed to investigate the differences between health-promoting lifestyles between prostitute women drug users and non-prostitute women drug users. Method: This cross-sectional descriptive-analytic study recruited 120 women including 60 prostitute drug users and 60 non-prostitute drug users selected by convenience sampling in Tehran in 2015. They completed the Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile. Data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of variance in SPSS version 20. Results: The results indicated a significant difference between prostitute and non-prostitute women drug users in terms of health-promoting lifestyle (p<0.05). The subscales showed that non-prostitute women drug users had higher scores in spirituality, responsibility, and stress management than prostitute women drug users (p<0.05). However, prostitute women drug users gained higher scores in interpersonal relationship and nutrition than non-prostitute drug users (p<0.05). Conclusion: These findings emphasize that health promoting lifestyle can play an essential role in health and therapeutic interventions (primary and secondary) in prostitute and non-prostitute women drug users.
