To study the dynamics of personality features and features of self-release in drug addicts. We examined 10 drug-dependent patients with whom psycho-correctional work was carried out, 10 drug-dependent patients with whom correctional work was not carried out, and 20 healthy young people. All participants were men aged 20 to 24 years. Personality characteristics were determined by Cattell's 16PF questionnaire and a set of psychological tests. Correction work was carried out by a psychologist (7 sessions, one hour each). In these cases, the patients were examined before and after psychocorrectional intervention. The high levels of sociability, self-esteem and expressiveness combined with low intelligence were identified in drug addicts compared with healthy people. Drug addicts are willing to accept themselves and are interested in their own personality. This study is of practical importance and can be used as a material for dealing with people with addictive behavior.
