If you’re living with alcohol use disorder or alcoholism, it’s easy to get treatment with Better Life Partners. We offer both in-person and online care services, with translators if needed, to make sure we can reach you anywhere in Maine, anytime you’re looking, in whatever language you’re most comfortable with. Let us be the flexible ones to help lessen your load. 

Our alcohol treatment program consists of weekly group therapy led by a licensed counselor with options for medications, recovery coaching, and other additional services.

Whether you choose in-person or virtual care, you’ll receive the same member-based approach to treatment. Everything will be designed around your wants and needs for recovery, including which of our many services you take part in. 

At the heart of our alcohol treatment model is our group counseling sessions. This model isn’t unique to BLP, in fact, AA programs across the world rely on group-based therapy… because it works! What is unique is that our groups are led by a licensed counselor able to give expert feedback on a variety of concerns. During these meetings, we usually cover educational topics relating to alcoholism or recovery. This is where you can begin to build a life-long community support network from the peers you interact with. 

In our alcohol treatment program, you’ll also gain access to our other medical professionals who can help support you in symptom/craving management, alternative coping skills, and goal setting. This combination of trained professionals and friendly peers creates an atmosphere that fosters lasting recovery.

Here are a few of the many resources we can provide to our members living with alcohol use disorder in Maine thanks to our partnerships across the Maine:

Optional Medications for Alcoholism (AUD) in Auburn, ME 

Some of our members living with alcohol use disorder opt to use medication-assisted treatment. If this is something you’re interested in and it’s medically appropriate for you, at Better Life Partners you can start any of these on the same day you call us at (866) 679-0831.

The following are the three medications we have available at Better Life Partners:

  • Naltrexone: Great for someone looking to decrease but not abstain from alcohol.
  • Acamprosate: Great for someone looking to stop drinking entirely and works by decreasing cravings and urges to drink.
  • Disulfiram: Also great for someone looking to completely stop drinking but works by making you extra sensitive to alcohol intake. 

All three of these medications are safe and effective at treating alcohol use disorder. However, we realize that not everyone is looking for medication-assisted treatment and that’s totally okay! Regardless of what path you choose for your recovery, everyone gets the guidance of our compassionate medical providers and licensed counselors alongside a recovery community.

If you have questions or would like to see if medication-assisted treatment would be a good choice for you, give us a call/text at (866) 679-0831.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Auburn, Maine?

We partner with community organizations so that we can provide our medication-assisted treatment services wherever they’re needed in Maine. With fantastic partners and virtual options, no matter where you are in the state, you can receive our alcohol treatment services.

How is Better Life Partners’ alcohol treatment program different from AA?

Our program takes the best parts of AA and builds upon them. We offer group sessions, like AA, but they are led by licensed professionals and are focused on your unique needs. You can also receive our treatment online or in person based on your preference. While our sessions aren’t geared toward a one-faith practice, we support members of all faiths and encourage each person to share what’s important to them.

Why do you use Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) and alcoholism interchangeably?

First and foremost, we use the word alcoholism on our website to make sure folks looking online for treatment find us as an option! That said, we know there are several people out there who don’t relate to that word, so we use it alongside AUD and aim to use alcohol use disorder in place of alcoholism when possible.  

We use alcohol use disorder instead of alcoholism because AUD includes varying degrees of alcohol use and is a diagnostic medical term, whereas “alcoholism” is a colloquial term that is often interpreted negatively or as referring to someone with a severe alcohol use problem. So, we use AUD to be inclusive and non-judgmental!

Do I need to take medication to be in your program?

Absolutely not! We never ask our members to do anything they are not comfortable with. Many of our members opt out of medications and others elect to use them. Your recovery is up to you! We’re here to provide you with options so you can choose the treatment style that works best for you.

I’m interested in medications, how quickly can I start on Naltrexone/Acamprosate/Disulfiram for Alcoholism?

We offer same-day treatment with or without medications for alcoholism/AUD. Call/text to get started: (866) 679-0831.

What is expected of me during treatment?

First, you will meet with a medical professional to get started. After that, members take part in supportive counseling sessions. Depending on where you’re at in your recovery, this may look like weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly group therapy. Overall, what your treatment looks like is up to you–we’re just here to give you whatever support you need in the process.

Do you accept insurance?

Yes. We accept Mainecare, Medicare, most insurances, and offer a sliding fee scale as needed.

What’s it like to be a Better Life Partners member?

We may be biased, but we think it’s pretty great! We operate with a non-punitive harm reduction philosophy, which means that we offer compassion and flexibility to help you achieve your goals. We believe in creating options and a sense of belonging during recovery, instead of focusing on consequences. Plus, we integrate with other community organizations to make sure you can get our care no matter where you are.
