SAMHSA News - November/December 2007, Volume 15, Number 6

Booklet Available in Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese

SAMHSA recently introduced several new versions of a family-oriented publication under its Multi-Language Initiative (MLI), part of the Agency's Knowledge Application Program.

What Is Substance Abuse Treatment? A Booklet for Families is now available in Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese. The booklet also is available online and in print in Spanish, and online in Russian (see SAMHSA News online, July/August 2007).

This publication answers questions often asked by the family members and significant others of people entering treatment. The booklet also includes a resource section with a list of support groups.

Under the initiative, SAMHSA products are translated and culturally adapted for people who do not speak English or have limited English-language abilities.

To download free copies of this publication in various languages, or to learn more about the initiative, visit SAMHSA's MLI Web site at
