Alcohol and drug addiction is a bio-psycho-social illness that affects a person not only physically but also influences his psyche, thinking and behaviour as well as his attitude towards himself and his closest friends and others. In this paper, particular attention is paid to the three components of addiction disorder patients’ social intelligence (SI): social information processing (SIP), social skills (SS) and social awareness (SA). Using the Social Intelligence Test, 241 respondents were questioned; all Riga Centre of Psychiatry and Addiction Disorder department patients. The mean arithmetical indicators were statistically relevant and significantly higher for males than females (in SIP factor); drug addict indicators were higher than those of alcoholics in all three SI factors. Male drug addict indicators were statistically relevant and significantly higher in the SIP and SA factors when compared to those of male alcoholics. For female drug addicts and alcoholics the SI factors had no significant statistical difference. In this paper, the research results were analyzed. The results allude to the respondents’ difficulties in adequately and critically assessing their own aptitudes of social intelligence as well as their various ways of responding that are deemed socially acceptable.
