Problems exist in identifying and treating deaf alcoholics and substance abusers. Even once they are identified, there are still problems in effectively applying existing regimens of therapy to this special population. Employing existing behavior modification therapeutic methods in programs geared for the rehabilitation of alcoholics with normal hearing, with only the adjustment of supplying an interpreter for the Deaf, may not be enough. These do not take into account the unique culture of the deaf person, and inherent development idiosyncrasies that may dictate an adaptation of behavior modification.
