One of the effects of globalization in Indonesia is the increase in drug abusers. In the last 3 years, there has been an increase in drug abusers and tobacco consumption in the productive age group. At the Drug Rehabilitation Centre, National Narcotics Boards in 2015 until 2018, there was an increase in abusers to relapse from 5% to 6.3%. This study aims to analyze the influence of smoking behaviors on the tendency of relapse and to compare smoking and non-smoking on the decline in drugs abusers in the Rehabilitation Center. This research uses a quantitative approach. The sample of this research is 162 respondents who were drug abusers undergoing rehabilitation. A questionnaire collected data. Factor analysis is used to process the data of the independent variables. Coping was the most dominant factor in relapse tendencies. Results indicate that smoking behavior can reduce the tendency of relapse in drug abusers in the Drug Rehabilitation Center. We recommend conducting further research on what kind of coping is suitable for drug abusers to reduce the tendency to relapse and review the smoking cessation policy at the Drug Rehabilitation Center. Another suggestion is to taper the dose of cigarette use on drug abusers.
