How Does Medication-Assisted Treatment Work?
At Better Life Partners, some members use medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to support them through their opioid addiction recovery. MAT is a form of addiction treatment that usually utilizes medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) alongside behavioral therapy for a more whole-person style of treatment. MAT recognizes that you are so much more than your addiction, which is why it works to support you in all areas of your life.
At Better Life Partners, we prescribe Suboxone for MAT. Suboxone is a MOUD that comes in the form of a sublingual film and is made up of buprenorphine and naloxone. A common misconception about MAT is that it is simply trading one addiction for another, but this isn’t true. MAT has been shown to be safe and effective at treating opioid addiction, it can help with things like cravings and withdrawal symptoms, relapsing, and it can even reduce the likelihood of opioid overdose deaths.
When you get MAT with Better Life Partners, you are guided by a clinician throughout your entire treatment process. You are also able to get support from your peers through weekly group counseling sessions, which are also led by a medical professional. Better Life Partners provides medication-assisted treatment anywhere in Massachusetts.
We are ready to support you in whatever ways you need, just call/text us today at (866) 679-0831 to see if MAT with Suboxone is right for you.

How to recognize the signs of opioid addiction:
Johns Hopkins Medicine defines opioid use disorder as a medical condition in which one is “not able to abstain from using opioids, and behaviors around opioid use interfere with daily life.” Opioid addiction is a medical condition and it should be treated with compassion and respect just like any other. Here are a few signs to look out for if you suspect a loved one is living with opioid addiction:
- Weight loss
- New financial struggles
- Isolation from friends and family
- Declining hygiene
- Along with others
If you suspect that a loved one is living with opioid use disorder, approach the situation with kindness and respect. Let them know that you’re there to support them, but don’t try to force them to do anything that they aren’t comfortable with. Try to understand where they’re coming from, and recognize that forcing them to seek treatment when they aren’t ready can cause more harm than good. It is their life and they will seek treatment if and when they are ready.

More Information About Boston
About Boston, MA
Boston (US: , UK: ), officially the City of Boston, is the capital and most populous city of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States and 24th-most populous city in the country. The city proper covers about 48.4 sq mi (125 km2) with a population of 675,647 in 2020, also making it the most populous city in New England. It is the seat of Suffolk County (although the county government was disbanded on July 1, 1999). The city is the economic and cultural anchor of a substantially larger metropolitan area known as Greater Boston, a metropolitan statistical area (MSA) home to a census-estimated 4.8 million people in 2016 and ranking as the tenth-largest MSA in the country. A broader combined statistical area (CSA), generally corresponding to the commuting area and including Providence, Rhode Island, is home to some 8.2 million people, making it the sixth most populous in the United States.Boston is one of the oldest municipalities in the United States, founded on the Shawmut Peninsula in 1630 by Puritan settlers from the English town of the same name. It was the scene of several key events of the American Revolution, such as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the siege of Boston. Upon American independence from Great Britain, the city continued to be an important port and manufacturing hub as well as a center for education and culture. The city has expanded beyond the original peninsula through land reclamation and municipal annexation. Its rich history attracts many tourists, with Faneuil Hall alone drawing more than 20 million visitors per year. Boston's many firsts include the United States' first public park (Boston Common, 1634), first public or state school (Boston Latin School, 1635) first subway system (Tremont Street subway, 1897), and first large public library (Boston Public Library, 1848).
