This paper studies the lifeline of women under methadone treatment, by using qualitative research method and phenomenological interpretation studies. Hence, in-depth interviews have been conducted with 15 women under treatment at the Drop in Center (DIC). In this study, the lifeline of women was studied in two periods of before and after consumption. Results show that five main categories including anomy in the family, living in deviation-oriented families, marital crises, victimization experiences, and attempts to heal and curiosity and adventure have been identified in the study that show how women are on the trail of drug use. Furthermore, results show that women interviewed in describing their course of life in post-use period have narrated several narratives of narcotic effects on their lives, classified in four categories including consumption and physical and mental transformation, consumption and increasing sexual relations, the collapse of the family, and declining social status.
