Background and Objectives: The purpose of this study was to compare family resilience (family communication and problem solving, utilizing social and economic resources, maintaining a positive outlook, family connectedness, family spirituality, ability to make meaning of adversity) and emotional maturity between dependent and non-dependent men. 
Method: This is a casual-comparative research. Convenience sampling was used to recruit120 participants, who were clients of addiction treatment of Fuman –Iran in 2014. A corresponding number of non-dependent participants were also recruited the same way. The research instruments were Family Resilience and Emotional Maturity scales. Multivariate Analysis of variance (MANCOVA) was used to analyze the data.
Results: The results showed that dependent people scored lower in all subscales of family resilience, namely, family communication and problem solving, utilizing social and economic resources, maintaining a positive outlook, family connectedness, family spirituality, ability to make meaning of adversity than non-dependent people (p>0.001).They also scored lower in emotional maturity scale than non-dependent people.
