Naltrexone for alcoholism in Gloucester, Massachusetts

What’s unique about our alcohol treatment program at Better Life Partners?

  • We base our alcoholism (AUD) treatment model on harm reduction. We welcome members from all circumstances and varied recovery hopes. Whether your goal is abstinence, cutting back, or something else, you can start treatment with us knowing you will be supported unconditionally without judgment. And if your journey takes you to unexpected places, like relapse or missed meetings, we’ll continue to provide you with respect and options. 
  • We offer dozens of resources to choose from to support you during your recovery. Our goal is to provide you with a customizable treatment plan to match your specific goals for recovery. Whether that includes medication-assisted treatment, group counseling, mental health practitioners, or others, is up to you. And if you’d like to participate in other treatment programs, like AA, at the same time as ours, that’s okay too.
  • We care about making our treatment accessible to you. With a wide range of treatment times spanning from early morning through later evening and options for in-person or online care, we’re confident we can accommodate your busy schedule and lifestyle. Even better, with no waitlists or abstinence requirements, you can start on the same day you give us a call.

Medication-assisted treatment for alcoholism (AUD) in Gloucester, MA

Medication for AUD is one of the many treatment options we offer our members. If you think you may be interested, you can call or text us at (866) 679-0831 to get more information or get started today. Taking medication is never mandatory to join our program, but is an option for those who’re interested. 

Better Life Partners has three medications we offer to members for alcohol use disorder:

  • Naltrexone: This medication can be helpful for people who want to reduce their drinking but don’t necessarily want to abstain from alcohol. It works by reducing the euphoric effects felt while drinking. 
  • Disulfiram: Disulfiram works by making your body extremely sensitive to drinking alcohol. It is most appropriate for people who want to fully abstain from alcohol.
  • Acamprosate: Like Disulfiram, this medication helps people with abstinence. It works by reducing people’s cravings and urges to drink. 

Studies on all three of these medications show they’re safe and effective, especially when combined with other supportive services like group therapy. If you think medication could be right for you, we’ll have you meet up with one of our clinicians who can fully explain all your options. Just call or text us at (866) 679-0831 to see if this route could be for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Gloucester, Massachusetts?

We partner with community organizations so that we can provide our medication-assisted treatment services wherever they’re needed in Massachusetts. 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 Medicaid, Medicare, BCBS, MassHealth, 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.
