People who speak other languages, other than English that is, should be able to 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 rehabilitation programs available which provide services to those who speak foreign languages, all of which offer a selection of programs to choose from. For example, some drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide services for 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 rehabilitation program which would be suitable to their needs.
