Breaux Bridge, a city in St. Martin Parish, has a total area of 20.46 km² and an estimated population of 8,227 as of 2018. Breaux Bridge is not home to tens of thousands of people, but the extent to which opioid addiction has spread across the nation and the world at large means the city could be home to a number of people suffering from opioid dependency. Such people may visit any Breaux Bridge methadone clinic for medical assistance. Reliance on opioid use has some negative effects but people find it difficult to quit because the level of craving is uncontrollable and there could be physical pains too. Methadone relieves pains. It also minimizes every other effect of opioids. It has been safely used by medication-assisted treatment experts to aid the recovery of many people. This has given it a place on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medications. Most methadone clinics in Louisiana do not stop at the dispensing of methadone, they convince the program enrollees to take some counseling to correct some of the psychological effects of opioids. All methadone clinics are required to register with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Methadone maintenance is regulated and doses of methadone should not be taken without the supervision of a health provider.
