Individuals who speak other languages, other than English that is, should be able to 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 quite a few substance abuse rehab programs available which cater to those who speak foreign languages, all of which provide a variety of programs to choose from. For example, some substance abuse treatment facilities which provide services for individuals who speak other languages are only short term rehab facilities, but there are more long term options available. Foreign language speakers can consult with a treatment professional in their area to choose a drug or alcohol treatment facility that provides rehabilitation services in their specific language.
