Other Language Programs

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 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 various programs to choose from. For example, some drug treatment facilities 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 a treatment professional in their area to choose a drug rehabilitation program which would be suitable to their needs.
