Pranom Found Care in her Native Language

 

It's not always easy for Pranom to communicate her needs because English is her second language. Thankfully, she's found an addiction treatment program in California that offers care in her native Thai language. Pranom's story shows just how important it is to receive support that meets our accessibility needs and honors our cultural backgrounds.
