Medication-assisted recovery for alcoholism in Essex, VT

Optional medication for alcohol use disorder is one of the many services we provide to our members on the same day they call or text us at (866) 679-0831. Medication is never a requirement to be in our program but can offer additional support to those members who are interested.

At Better Life Partners we offer three medications for alcohol use disorder (AUD). If you’re interested in medication, a clinician will meet with you to help you decide if it could be a good fit for you and your goals. The following are the three medications we have available: 

  • Acamprosate: This medication lessens cravings and urges to drink and is recommended for individuals hoping to quit drinking completely.
  • Disulfiram: Similar to Acamprosate, this medication works best for those with a goal of complete abstinence. In addition to minimizing urges and cravings to drink, it makes you very physically sensitive to alcohol intake.
  • Naltrexone: This medication is better suited for people who want to decrease their drinking, but not necessarily quit.

Research and studies on all three medications show they are a safe and effective way to treat alcohol use disorder, especially when combined with other supportive services. If medication is right for you, a clinician will work with you closely and monitor frequently to ensure it’s working the way you had hoped.

If you think medication for alcoholism fits your needs and goals or have additional questions, call or text us at (866) 679-0831.

Compassionate Healing for Alcohol Use Disorder in Essex, VT

We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to AUD treatment at Better Life Partners because we don’t believe it exists. We welcome all recovery versions and never push abstinence. With us, you’re always the one calling the shots, no matter what version of recovery you’re after.

We welcome our members with the warmth and compassion they deserve. Our commitment to a harm reduction philosophy ensures you will never have to deal with judgment or punishment within our program.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Essex, Vermont?

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