This study was a descriptive survey of a correlational type. The statistical population of the present study was all of girl high school students in Malard between 2014 and 2015. 400 individuals of them were selected as the sample based on Cochran formula. 4 out of 19 girl high schools in Malard were chosen using a random-classified method. Then, some students were selected among these schools using a simple-random method. In order to collect required data and information in this study, family assessment device (FAD) standard questionnaire and internet addiction standard questionnaire were used that have been previously confirmed in validity and reliability researches. The results of the present study showed that students’ internet addiction increased with enhancement of improper family function.
