The city has a total area of 318.6 km², on which some methadone clinics could be found. Residents of the city may get medication-assisted treatment to overcome opioid dependency in any methadone clinic Shreveport LA. People who use opioids once are likely to return to it because of the euphoria it gives. Its effects are, however, short term. This means people may find themselves taking it frequently even when it causes negative effects. The problem becomes bigger when people withdraw. There could be physical pains and craving enough to push them back to opioids. Methadone, on the other hand, is an opioid agonist. It manages pains and minimizes craving. It corrects the psychological and physical effects of opioids in the body. It is safe and effective, but it should only be taken under the supervision of a medication-assisted treatment health provider. Methadone clinics in Louisiana, as done in other states, inform the patients about the need to pair medication with behavioral therapies.
