People who speak other languages, other than English that is, should receive substance abuse treatment which is on par with English speakers. Speakers of 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 quite a few substance abuse rehab programs available which cater to those who speak foreign languages, all of which provide various programs to choose from. For example, some drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which can treat people who speak other languages are only short term programs, and others are longer term programs. Foreign language speakers can consult with an addiction professional in their area to choose a drug rehab program that provides rehabilitation services in their specific language.
