People 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. Speakers of other languages should not feel that their treatment opportunities are limited or inferior because they don't speak English. There are many drug and alcohol treatment centers available which cater to those who speak foreign languages, all of which provide various programs to choose from. For example, some substance abuse treatment programs which cater to those who speak other languages are only short term programs, and others are longer term programs. Foreign language speakers should consult with an addiction professional in their area to choose a drug or alcohol treatment facility that provides rehabilitation services in their specific language.
