Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers with Language-Specific Services in Puerto Rico

The territory of Puerto Rico is 99% Spanish speaking, and drug treatment centers or programs are in Spanish. Substance abuse and addiction affect all parts of the island, and drug rehabilitation programs struggle to keep up with the need of people wanting help. Language-specific rehabilitation in Puerto Rico is services in English, for English speaking clients. When someone is deaf or hard of hearing and struggling with addiction, they will need specific treatment. These are programs providing American Sign Language. ASL is the most effective way for a deaf individual to communicate what is happening with his or her addiction. Persons with disabilities struggle with addiction more often than what people realize. The biggest barrier is finding a treatment that will meet their needs. Not every drug treatment center in Puerto Rico provides ASL assisted treatment. Typically, in most situations, special arrangements are made to help a client. For example, organizing an ASL interpreter to help the patient, or through other methods that use American Sign Language.
