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 treatment centers available which cater to those who speak foreign languages, all of which offer a variety of programs to choose from. For example, some drug rehabilitation programs which provide services for those who speak other languages are only short term programs, but there are more long term options available. Foreign language speakers can consult with an addiction professional in their area to choose a drug rehab program that provides rehabilitation services in their specific language.
