People who speak other languages, other than English that is, should receive drug or alcohol treatment which is on par with English speakers. 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 rehab programs available which cater to those who speak foreign languages, all of which offer various programs to choose from. For example, some drug treatment programs which can treat people who speak other languages are only short term programs, and others are longer term programs. Foreign language speakers should seek the advice from an addiction professional in their area to choose a drug or alcohol treatment facility which would be suitable to their needs.
