Drug and alcohol addiction is a continuing problem for many people in Puerto Rico, and within the deaf or hard-of-hearing community, there will be a small percentage of those who are struggling with a substance abuse disorder or mental illness. Many people in the deaf or hard-of-hearing communities do not always receive the proper support and help they need because of the communication barrier. Many services in Puerto Rico are not equipped to help people who are deaf or hard of hearing because they cannot provide individuals and counselors or can use American Sign Language. The communication process is important, and this is how an addict can address the underlying issues they are facing with their addiction. Throughout Puerto Rico are many different types of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs and services, and some of these facilities may have the capacity to treat someone who is deaf or hard of hearing. It is not uncommon to have to travel to another location in the United States to access programs, specifically for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
