Convenient Medication-Assisted Treatment in Standish, ME

At Better Life Partners, we offer same-day access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with Suboxone. MAT is a recovery tool that usually utilizes a combination of medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) and behavioral therapy–but it can look different for everyone. MAT is a whole-person form of treatment that recognizes that you are so much more than your drug use history, it aims to support you in all areas of your life.

We prescribe Suboxone for MAT, which is a medication in the form of a sublingual film that has been shown to be safe and effective at treating opioid use disorder. Suboxone is composed of buprenorphine and naloxone, both of which have been extensively researched and FDA approved.

A popular misconception about MAT is that it is simply trading one addiction for another, which is not true. MAT has been thoroughly researched and shown to be safe and effective at treating opioid addiction. Studies have shown that MAT can help individuals living with opioid use disorder decrease their chances of overdose deaths, lessen unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, and even reduce cravings.

You can get same-day access to medication-assisted treatment with Suboxone when you call/text us at (866) 679-0831.
