Abstract: 
Objective: The present study aimed to determine the frequency of drug abused in a sample of university students in Rafsanjan, Iran. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 1, 260 students volunteered (311 males and 949 females) with mean age of 21. 35 years. Data were collected by a self-administrated questionnaire regarding drugs abuse and demographic information. Results: Benzodiazepines were the most common abused drugs which were reported in 94 students (7. 4%). Other agents studied were cigarette and tobacco (159, cases 12. 6%), alcoholic drinks (60 cases, 4. 7%), and opiates (42 cases, 3. 3%). Forty-three students (3. 4%) had used methylphenidate in the last 6 months. Of this, 39 (90. 6%) experienced insomnia. All students who abused methylphenidate indicated that the reason for this behavior was to raise alertness and conscious levels. Conclusion: The pattern of drug abuse among the students here seems similar to other reports from Iranian universities.
