How to Get Medication-Assisted Treatment in Augusta, ME

Better Life Partners offers same-day medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using Suboxone when you call/text (866) 679-0831.

MAT is a comprehensive approach to addiction treatment. This means that in addition to receiving medication for opioid use disorder, you also have access to weekly group counseling sessions led by a licensed professional.
