Spanish substance abuse treatment programs in St. Georges can help an ever-growing number of the American population address higher than normal rates of alcohol and drug abuse among Hispanic people face in the United States. One of the tallest hurdles Hispanic men and women face while tackling addiction problems is the availability of centers with staff prepared to deliver treatment services in their language. Another hurdle is that fact that many Hispanic people may not even be an U.S. citizen, hence won't have health insurance coverage to cover the cost of rehab, and many are below the poverty line so can't pay themselves either.
Because many aspects of a drug and alcohol treatment program revolve around one-on-one communication with therapists, physicians, etc. a person that doesn't speak English is at a disadvantage at a treatment program where Spanish speaking services aren't available to them. But there are programs which offer Spanish language services and staff who can help them in their language. Luckily, a good number of these centers understand the financial challenges that these clients also have, and offer rehabilitation at little or no cost. Spanish-speaking substance abuse treatment programs are most often located in the densely populated areas of cities where Hispanics live.
