'An equal opportunity destroyer': Opioid addiction pushes New Orleans treatment centers to capacity

The Times-Picayune - The people seeking help for drug addiction at Bridge House/Grace House in New Orleans have been getting younger and younger over the last four years.

Kevin Gardere, the executive development director at the organization, said that last year about 31 percent of the 808 people served at the center were under 30 years old. Roughly half were addicted to opiates.
