Naltrexone for alcoholism in Portland, Maine

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

Are you interested in taking medication for alcohol use? Text or call us ASAP at (866) 679-0831 to get set up with medication treatment today! Some of our members use medication for AUD and find it useful, while others don’t take medication. It’s always your choice: you do not have to take medication to get treatment with Better Life Partners!

We offer these three medications for alcohol use disorder AUD to interested members:

  • Naltrexone: This medication is most helpful for people who want to reduce alcohol use without necessarily abstaining from alcohol.
  • Acamprosate: Acamprosate is effective for those who would like to abstain from drinking. It works by lessening urges to drink and cravings.
  • Disulfiram: Like Acamprosate, Disulfiram is most appropriate for folks who are pursuing complete abstinence. It makes your body extremely sensitive to alcohol use, so you may experience unpleasant symptoms if you drink.

Many studies have found these medications for AUD to be safe and work well. Members who opt for medication treatment often feel that it is a helpful tool in conjunction with our other treatment features like group counseling.

Reach out to us right away and start medication treatment for alcohol use disorder today! We’re a call or text away at (866) 679-0831.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Portland, 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.
