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 rehab facilities available which cater to those who speak foreign languages, all of which offer a selection of programs to choose from. For example, some substance abuse rehabilitation programs which cater to people who speak other languages are only short term rehab facilities, but there are more long term options available. Foreign language speakers should seek the advice from a treatment professional in their area to choose a drug or alcohol rehab program that provides rehabilitation services in their specific language.
