If you’re interested in medication-assisted treatment for alcohol use disorder, you can schedule a longer follow-up medical evaluation. Here, you’ll work with a prescriber to determine if medication is right for you. At Better Life Partners, we provide three medications: Acamprosate, Disulfiram, and Naltrexone. If medication is prescribed, it will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice. If you prefer to not use medication (and many members don’t), that’s okay! What your recovery looks like is up to you.

After our initial conversation and if you’re interested in becoming a member, we’ll help you continue treatment by setting up an assessment, a short orientation, and weekly group therapy sessions.

How to get medication for alcoholism (now known as Alcohol Use Disorder):

Medication-assisted treatment is just one of the many resources we provide for members living with alcohol use disorder (AUD). It definitely isn’t required to be in our program, but if you’re interested in using medication to support you during recovery, we’d be happy to talk about your options!

We provide three different medications for AUD: Acamprosate (Campral), Disulfiram (Antabuse), and Naltrexone. All of these medications have been studied and shown to be effective and safe when treating AUD. When you get medication-assisted treatment with Better Life Partners, you’ll get help from a clinician in order to determine what medication might be a good fit for you.

For those looking to abstain from alcohol completely, we typically recommend Acamprosate or Disulfiram. These medications work to limit cravings in different ways. Disulfiram works by decreasing cravings and lessening withdrawal symptoms. On the other hand, Acamprosate works by decreasing cravings and causing nausea when taken with alcohol. This unpleasant side-effect lessens the likelihood of drinking.

For those who are more interested in reducing their drinking, but not necessarily abstaining altogether, we typically recommend Naltrexone. Naltrexone is another medication that helps limit cravings and reduces withdrawal symptoms, but it also lessens the pleasant effects of alcohol.

If you think medication-assisted treatment might be right for you, call or text us at (866) 679-0831 to learn more about it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Windham, 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.
