Spanish-speaking substance abuse treatment facilities in North Scituate can help an ever-growing number of the American population address higher than normal rates of alcohol and drug addiction that Hispanic men and women face in this country. One of the biggest hurdles Hispanic women and men 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 rehabilitation, and many are below the poverty line so they 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. someone who speaks no English is immediately at a disadvantage at a treatment program where Spanish language services are not available to them. But there are programs that offer Spanish language services and staff members who can be of help to them in their own language. Fortunately, many of these facilities get the financial concerns that these clients also have, and offer rehabilitation at little or no cost. Spanish substance abuse rehab centers are most often found in the densely populated areas of cities where Hispanics live.
