Methadone Clinics in Alexandria, Louisiana

Alexandria, a city with a total area of 75.58 km², is the ninth-largest city in the U.S. state of Louisiana. Opioid dependency is a problem that has hit almost every part of the world. Alexandria’s 2019 population estimated at 46,180 means the city could be home to a number of people battling opioid dependency. Such people may visit an Alexandria methadone clinic to get medical assistance. People experiencing opioid use disorder rely on opioids even when there are negative effects. It could be difficult for them to quit without help because the effects of opioids are short term and they are immediately followed by uncontrollable cravings. Withdrawal could lead to pains but that is one of the effects methadone minimizes. It also reduces craving, helping the patient to function better socially. Methadone is safe if taken in compliance with the recommendation of a medication-assisted treatment professional. Self-medication is discouraged because doses of methadone are only prescribed by the health provider after consideration of the health history of the patients. Methadone could have some side effects but they are not health-threatening if handled by the health provider. All methadone clinics in Louisiana are required to be accredited by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
