Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder

Medication-assisted treatment, also known as MAT, is a whole-person addiction treatment method that combines medication and behavioral therapy to help those living with opioid use disorder. MAT is safe, FDA approved, and has been shown to be a more effective treatment option for opioid use disorder than traditional models that don’t offer medication.

Medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) includes medications like Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone), which is a medication we prescribe at Better Life Partners. Suboxone and MOUD have been proven to be safe and extremely effective in preventing opioid overdose, decreasing cravings, and reducing the symptoms of withdrawal. 

Our members who use MAT to treat their opioid use disorder have the choice to utilize the treatment for however long is medically necessary. Better Life Partners is here to support you on your journey, whatever that looks like.

Bringing Harm Reduction to Auburn

Better Life Partners knows that the healthcare system has historically failed individuals living with addiction, which is why we work so hard to provide addiction treatment that is stigma-free and focused on harm reduction.

Harm reduction, according to the National Harm Reduction Coalition, is a set of strategies and ideas “aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with drug use.” For us, it means that we respect and care for all people, regardless of whether or not they use drugs. Our harm reduction services look like providing narcan to folks, getting involved in safe syringe exchange programs, offering community-based counseling, medications, and more. 

At Better Life Partners, we never punish you for missing meetings or relapsing because we’re here to provide options, not to enforce consequences. We believe that you have the right to live your life however you choose, we’re just here to help you maintain a sense of safety, community, and recovery.
