Medication-Assisted Treatment that Works in Bangor, ME
MAT is a treatment style that recognizes that people are so much more than their drug use. Our staff at Better Life Partners understands the complexity of opioid addiction and we promise to never judge you for your choices. We’re here to provide you with recovery options, not consequences. From providing medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) like Suboxone to supportive group therapy, we’re here to support you.
A popular misconception of using medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) is that it is simply trading one addiction for another, which is completely false. Studies have shown that MOUD reduces unpleasant withdrawal symptoms and cravings, and it also decreases the likelihood of opioid overdose deaths. MOUD, like Suboxone, are proven to help folks find recovery and reduce the likelihood of relapse.
Why should you get opioid addiction treatment with Better Life Partners?
- Our care works with you, not against you. We know getting to appointments with a busy schedule or no transportation can be impossible. That’s why we offer virtual treatment options with flexible scheduling that you can participate in from your own home.
- We’re community-minded. We understand how important community is in Bangor. That’s why we partner with local organizations to ensure you get the care you deserve. Whether that’s MAT, resource referrals, or something else. We’re also confidential, so you can rest assured your privacy will be protected.
- We won’t judge you. We know there’s still a stigma surrounding addiction and treatment and we’re working hard to fight that. Our care is non-judgmental, kind, and most importantly, it’s focused on your goals.
Non-Judgmental MAT that Helps You Find Healing
Better Life Partners empowers our members through our harm reduction care model. Simply put, harm reduction means we respect and care for you as a person and work with you to eliminate potential harm. For example, this could include helping you reduce your risk of overdose! We want you to create your own goals for your future, we’re not here to tell you what to do or how to live your best life, we’re just here to bridge the gap between you and the resources you deserve. You can come as you are to our treatment program, no judgment.
Our main goal is to provide you with access to great healthcare, no matter what your background is. We know that the healthcare system has historically failed those living with opioid use disorder, which is why we partner with like-minded community-based organizations to bring care directly to you, wherever you are.
Having a harm reduction treatment model means that we don’t discriminate against anyone, and we don’t turn people away. You can be a member of Better Life Partners for however long you’d like, and if you leave, you’re always welcome back.
