Individuals who speak other languages, other than English that is, should be able to receive substance abuse 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 drug and alcohol 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 substance abuse rehab facilities which provide services for individuals who speak other languages are only short term programs, but there are more long term options available. Foreign language speakers should consult with an addiction professional in their area to choose a drug or alcohol rehabilitation program which would be suitable to their needs.
