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 treatment centers available which cater to those who speak foreign languages, all of which provide a variety of programs to choose from. For example, some drug and alcohol treatment facilities which cater to individuals who speak other languages are only short term rehab facilities, but there are more long term options available. Foreign language speakers should consult with a treatment professional in their area to choose a drug or alcohol rehabilitation facility that provides rehabilitation services in their specific language.
