The non addicted group was selected randomly from healthy people. Data collection was performed via a standard questionnaire. Data assessment was done via statistical analysis (K S) Results: Collected data in the addicted group showed the following results about 56 percent were child tormentors, 1- 45.3% males, 10.7% females, 2-18.7% uneducated, 3-46% with divorce history in their family and 4-38% child body abuse. The most prevalent type of the body abuse was slapping (24%), mostly because of bad training (26%). Collected data in the no addicted group showed the following results 42% were child tormentors (26% male and 15.3% female) 23.4% with family divorce history, 30.4% were child body abuse and the most prevalent type of body abuse was slapping (22.79%), mostly because of bad training (33.3%) Conclusion: A direct relationship was observed between child abuse and persons addicted to opiates.
