Naltrexone for alcoholism in Lowell, Massachusetts

What makes our alcohol treatment program unique?

  • Accessible bilingual alcohol use disorder care. We know how chaotic and busy life can be. That’s why we place such a huge emphasis on making our AUD program accessible for all.
  • We listen to and prioritize your goals. We’re a member-centric organization. This means you have the freedom to decide what’s most important to you and what direction you’d like your recovery journey to take. We’ll never tell you what your recovery needs to look like or include. We’re just here to provide you with a safe environment, support, and access to resources that can make your goals more possible. 
  • We provide you with options and compassion. Addiction is complex and recovery doesn’t always go the way our members planned. And when that happens, we’ll be here to continue to provide you with unconditional support and options for getting back on track or moving in another direction. You’ll never need to feel guilty or alone or fear being kicked out. We feel there’s a better way.

Providing Compassionate Alcoholism (AUD) Treatment in Lowell, MA

At Better Life Partners we’re committed to reducing the harms associated with alcohol use in any way we can. That’s why we’ve established a harm reduction policy so our members know they’re free to be themselves without risk of punishment or consequence. If you happen to miss a meeting, relapse, or even change your goals, with us, it’s okay. 

We know that everyone’s recovery journey is going to be unique–there’s no one-size-fits-all treatment for alcohol use disorder. It doesn’t matter to us if you’re hoping to reduce your drinking, quit, or try something in between. However, we can support you in your quest for a healthier life is what we’re going to do.

Whenever you’re ready to make that change, our recovery community is ready for you. Call or text us anytime at (866) 679-0831.

Optional medication for alcoholism (AUD) in Lowell, MA

We know that no two AUD recovery journeys will be the same, which is why we offer so many different support resources and tools. This way, you get to choose the path that best matches your vision for recovery.

One of the many support tools we offer at Better Life Partners is medication-assisted treatment. This is not a requirement to be in our program, but some of our members like the additional support it offers.

We have three different medications available to our members who’re recovering from alcohol use disorder:

  • Acamprosate is a medication that helps people who want to completely quit drinking by reducing their cravings and urges to drink alcohol.
  • Disulfiram, like Acamprosate, is also designed for people who would like to abstain from alcohol and works by making your body extremely sensitive to alcohol intake. 
  • Naltrexone is better suited for our members who are looking to cut back on drinking but not necessarily abstain. It works by reducing the overall pleasant feelings associated with alcohol ingestion. 

Studies on all three of these medications have shown great effectiveness and safety for treating alcohol use disorder, especially when combined with other support resources. 

If you think medication-assisted treatment could be a good fit for your recovery plan or you’d like more information, call or text us at (866) 679-0831.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Lowell, 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.
