Alienation is one of the symptoms of mental disease among human beings leading to their failure in properly fulfilling their roles in relation to society and themselves. This paper investigates the association between religiosity and lifestyle with alienation of adolescents. The survey sample included 381 Shiraz high school students. The information was obtained using multistage random sampling. The results indicated that religious rituals, religious identity, lifestyle and cultural participation have a negative relationship with adolescents’ alienation. Our study also suggested that the aforementioned variables could elucidate an approximately 23% of the variations of the dependent variable.
Religious practice and religious identity correlated mostly with alienation. The most important variable that could explain the changes in youth alienation was religious practice. This factor alone accounted for nearly 19% of variations. The second variable in the model was religious identity which explained 2.7% of all variations in teenager alienation. Last but not least is cultural participation style which could, together with the two other variables, account for almost 23% of variations in the dependent variable.
