Why is Better Life Partners’ alcohol use disorder (alcoholism) treatment unique?

  • Our group therapy sessions are led by licensed medical professionals/counselors. Group therapy is considered the mainstay of alcohol treatment because it gives members a community centered around recovery. In sessions, members support each other, discuss symptom management and stressors, and share their recovery experiences in the presence of a licensed counselor who can offer guidance and support.
  • Same-day care is available. Immediately after you call or text us at (866) 679-0381, you can get started with our judgment-free, non-punitive treatment. You’re welcome to come just as you are—we’re here to help provide you options as you get started in your recovery.
  • Our program is based on harm reduction. There are no requirements to participate in our program, and we don’t have guidelines like some 12-step programs or religious programming. You can leave our program at any time, and you are always welcome to come back!
  • The care we offer is member-centered, nonpunitive, and community-oriented. We understand that everybody has different treatment goals. We are here for you whether your goal is cutting back, abstinence, or something else. Our resources are designed to help you achieve your personal recovery goals and other members will be there to support you, not judge.
  • We believe that it helps to have multiple support systems during recovery. That’s why we offer our members a variety of resources, such as mental health counseling (including cognitive behavioral therapy), clinical group counseling, and medications for alcohol use disorder. You can also attend other programs, like AA, alongside ours.

Get optional medication for alcoholism (AUD) today in Orono, ME

On the same day that you call or text us at (866) 679-0831, Better Life Partners can offer members medications for alcohol use disorder. You do not need to take medication in order to participate in our groups-based program. Many people opt not to take medication for AUD, but those that choose to utilize it often find it helpful for recovery. If you are interested in medication for alcohol use disorder, one of our clinicians will help guide you through your options.

For those interested in medications for alcohol use disorder (AUD), we have three different medications available:

  • Naltrexone: This medication works for those who don’t necessarily want to abstain from alcohol, but would like to cut back.
  • Acamprosate: This medication reduces cravings and urges to drink, which means it works best for those who would like to abstain from alcohol completely.
  • Disulfiram: Like Acamprosate, this medication helps with abstinence from alcohol. It does this by making your body very sensitive to drinking alcohol.

Through extensive studies, these medications for alcohol use disorder have all been found to be safe and effective, alongside the power of weekly groups.

If you are interested in starting to take medication for alcohol use disorder, call/text us today at (866) 679-0831 to begin treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Orono, Maine?

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