The group leader, a licensed professional, facilitates conversations about alcohol use disorder and helps with things like setting goals and developing healthy coping mechanisms.
  • We believe our members deserve support in all areas of life. Better Life Partners provides many types of support, such as group counseling, peer support services, counseling for mental health (including CBT, or cognitive behavioral therapy), and others.

Naloxone for alcohol in Durham, New Hampshire

Get optional medication for alcoholism (AUD) today in Durham, NH

Call or text us today at (866) 679-0831 and get same-day medication treatment with Better Life Partners. You aren’t required to take medication in order to receive treatment: medication for AUD is never mandatory. Members who do use medication for alcohol use disorder often find that it helps them work towards their recovery goals. If you are interested in taking medication, we will set up a meeting for you with a clinician to discuss your options. 

We offer three different medications to those who choose to take medication for alcohol use disorder (AUD):

  • Disulfiram: This medication helps people completely abstain from alcohol. It does this by making your body extra sensitive to drinking alcohol.
  • Acamprosate: Like Disulfiram, this medication can be helpful for folks who would like to abstain from alcohol. Acamprosate reduces cravings and urges to drink.
  • Naltrexone: This medication is useful for people who don’t necessarily want to abstain completely from alcohol, but are interested in drinking less. It works by curbing cravings and decreasing the positive effects of drinking.

These medications for AUD have been found by many studies to be safe and effective. Alongside our weekly group therapy sessions, medication can be a helpful treatment tool.

If you are curious about taking medication for alcohol use, call or text us at (866) 679-0831 to begin treatment today!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Durham, New Hampshire?

We partner with community organizations so that we can provide our medication-assisted treatment services wherever they’re needed in New Hampshire. 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. You can also receive our treatment online or in person based on your preference. 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, NH Healthy Families, AmeriHealth Caritas, Well Sense, 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.
