Spanish-speaking drug and alcohol treatment programs in Rumford can help an ever-growing percentage of the American people address higher than normal rates of drug and alcohol addiction that Hispanic men and women face in this country. One of the tallest hurdles Hispanic people have to deal with while tackling addiction problems is the availability of facilities with staff prepared to deliver treatment services in their language. Another obstacle 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 treatment, and many are under the poverty line so can't self-pay either.
Because many aspects of a substance abuse rehab program revolve around one-on-one communication with therapists, physicians, etc. someone that speaks no English is at a disadvantage at a treatment program where Spanish language services aren't available to them. But there are programs that offer Spanish speaking services and staff members who can help them in their language. Luckily, most of these centers get the financial challenges that these people also have, and offer treatment at little or no cost. Spanish substance abuse treatment programs are more often found in the most densely populated areas of cities where Latinos live.
