Background: The addicts have a lower state of health and physical activity compared to general population. While exercise can improve the health status of the addicts even in cases that they have an impaired condition due to the substance abuse, it may have many behavioral and physiological benefits in the recovery process of such people. So, the aim of the current study was to investigate the effects of a 10 week aerobic exercise along with vitamin E supplementation on blood pressure, heart rate and VO2 max of addicted women.

Materials and Methods: The participants were the addicted women taken from a quit addiction camp in Zahedan. Based on available subjects sampling 38 addicted women were selected and classified into four groups: Exercise + Placebo (n=10), Exercise + Vitamin E (n=10), Vitamin E (n=10) and Placebo (n=8), which received the supplement and placebo for 10 weeks. The experimental group was studied for 10 weeks, three sessions per week (each lasting 40-50 minutes) with a maximum heart rate of 40-75%.

Results: The findings indicated that the VO2 max of Placebo, Exercise + Placebo, and Exercise + Vitamin E groups were increased compared to the Control group (P<0.05), but no significant difference was observed for blood pressure and heart rate in the  Placebo group.

Conclusion: It seems that aerobic exercises may affect the health status of addicted women through an increased VO2 max and independent of vitamin E supplementation.
