Those who speak other languages should not feel that their treatment curriculum or treatment setting is going to be any less effective because they don't speak English. There are many substance abuse treatment programs available which cater to those who speak foreign languages, all of which provide various programs to choose from. For example, some substance abuse rehabilitation programs which can treat individuals who speak other languages are only short term programs, but there are more long term options available.
