Research has shown that there is a combination of many factors that influence recovery in addiction. The purpose of this research is to investigate positive correlations of Coping skills, Self-Efficacy and Social Support with Quality of life and also to investigate the differences of these variables throughout recovery. This study is longitudinal in nature and involves participation of 27 individuals attending two Drug Rehabilitation treatment programmes who are stabilising and drug-free. Differences between groups and gender are also measured. There was a statistically significant difference found with Social and Peer Support for both Groups; increasing for Group B (p = .043) and decreasing for Group A (p = .285). Females and Males differed significantly in Psychological Quality of life scoring (p = .047)
