Spanish-speaking substance abuse rehabilitation programs in Central Falls can help an ever-growing percentage of the American population address higher than average rates of alcohol and drug abuse that Hispanic people face in the United States. One of the tallest hurdles Hispanic women and men face while tackling substance abuse problems is the availability of facilities with staff prepared to deliver treatment services in their language. Another obstacle is that fact that many Hispanic men and women may not even be an U.S. citizen, hence won't have health insurance coverage to cover the cost of rehab, and many live under the poverty line so they cannot pay themselves either.
Because many aspects of a drug and alcohol rehab program revolve around one-on-one communication with therapists, physicians, etc. someone who speaks no English is at a disadvantage at a treatment program where Spanish speaking services aren't available to them. But there are programs that offer Spanish speaking services and staff who can help them in their language. Fortunately, a good number of these centers get the financial concerns that these individuals also have, and deliver treatment at little or no cost. Spanish drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers are more often located in the most densely populated areas of cities where Hispanics live.
