Get optional medication treatment for alcohol use today in Saco, ME

Contact Better Life Partners by call or text at (866) 679-0831 and you can get set up with medication treatment for alcohol use disorder (AUD) that same day! Some of our members consider medication a useful part of their treatment, while others choose not to take medication. Taking medication is always optional in our program! If you’d like to learn more about the medication options we offer, you can chat with a clinician ASAP.

We provide these three medications to members who want to try medication for alcohol use disorder (AUD):

  • Disulfiram: This medication can be helpful for people who want to abstain from alcohol. It works by making your body very sensitive to alcohol, which might cause unpleasant symptoms if you drink.
  • Acamprosate: Like Disulfiram, this medication is best for those who are pursuing abstinence. It reduces urges to drink and cravings.
  • Naltrexone: This medication is most useful for people who don’t necessarily want to be abstinent, but would like to cut back on their alcohol consumption.

Studies have shown these three medications to be safe and to work well as alcohol treatment. Members who choose to take medication often find it useful in combination with our other resources like group counseling.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Saco, 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 Medicare, Mainecare, 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.
