What are medications for alcoholism (alcohol use disorder)?

You always have the option of using medication-assisted treatment to support you during your recovery, but it definitely isn’t required! Many of our members opt out of using medications for AUD, but some people find it to be a helpful part of their treatment program. Whether or not you decide to use medication during recovery, you can always participate in our group counseling sessions.

For those who are interested in medications for alcohol use disorder, you’ll be guided throughout the process by one of our clinicians. To give you an idea of what we offer, here are the three medications we can provide our members with:

  • Acamprosate (Campral): This medication is taken 3x/day and it is recommended for those looking to abstain from alcohol completely. It works by reducing cravings and urges to drink.
  • Naltrexone: You can take this daily as a pill or monthly as an injectable, and we typically recommend it to individuals looking to reduce their drinking but not necessarily abstain from it altogether. It works by reducing cravings and reducing the pleasant effects of alcohol.
  • Disulfiram (Antabuse): This medication comes in the form of a daily pill and is recommended to those looking to abstain from alcohol altogether. Similar to Acamprosate, it reduces cravings and urges to drink, but it also causes the body to become more sensitive to alcohol intake as well.

Studies have been done on all three of these medications, and they have shown to be safe and effective at treating alcohol use disorder (alcoholism). If you do choose to use medication during your recovery, you’ll meet with a medication provider once a month to ensure things are going smoothly.

If you’re interested in medication-assisted treatment for AUD, call or text us at (866) 679-0831 to begin treatment today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Haverhill, Massachusetts?

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