Factors such as age duration of addiction and number of times being sent to rehabilitation centres has no relationship with the self-esteem of the respondent. Nevertheless, there is a significant difference between self-esteem scores among drug addicts who stay in their urban as opposed to the rural areas. The study also shows that family members influence has no significant relationship with criminal behaviour; the age of the addicts has no significant relationship with family members influence. This study also reveals that the duration of addiction and number of times being sent to rehabilitation centre has significant relationship with family members influence, but family members influence has no significant differentiation based from place of stay. The study also shows that there is no significant relationship between peers influence and criminal behaviour with addiction factors. It also reveals that society influence has significant relationship with criminal behaviour. The duration of addiction and number of times being sent to rehabilitation centre has significant relationship with society influence. Finally, the study shows that learning institution influence has no negative significant relationship with criminal behaviour, where as the duration of addiction and number of times being sent to Rehabilitation Centre has significant relationship with learning institution influence. Furthermore this study found that the age of drug addicts and the location of drug addicts place of stay has no relationship significant differentiation with learning institution influence. Regression test shows that the number of times being sent to Rehabilitation Centre and society influence are dominant variables which influence crime behaviour by drug addicts followed by family members influence and learning institution influence. Generally, on the whole, self-esteem and peers have no relationship between criminal behaviour. So, this research model cannot be fully supported.
