Heal with Medication-Assisted Treatment in Scarborough, ME

At Better Life Partners we prescribe Suboxone for medication-assisted treatment, also known as MAT. MAT is a form of whole-person treatment that utilizes a combination of medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) and behavioral therapy to treat opioid addiction. MAT is safe, FDA approved, and has been shown to be a more effective method of treatment for opioid addiction than other models that don’t use medication.

We prescribe Suboxone for MAT, which is a medication in the form of a sublingual film that is composed of buprenorphine and naloxone. Suboxone has been shown to be safe in both long-term and short-term treatment plans, so you can continue using MAT for as long as is medically necessary.

MAT has been shown to be an effective form of treatment for opioid addiction. It can help with things like unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and can even prevent opioid overdose deaths. Our members who utilize MAT have a medical professional guiding them throughout the whole process, and they also have access to weekly group counseling sessions–so you never have to go through treatment alone.

Call/text us today at (866) 679-0831 to see if medication-assisted treatment with Suboxone is right for you, there’s always someone ready to talk.
