Optional medications for alcoholism (alcohol use disorder), learn more here:

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)) is one of the many support tools we offer our members living with alcohol use disorder (alcoholism). Medication is completely optional, but if you’re interested it can be an integral piece of the puzzle for some people. MAT is a safe and effective form of alcohol use disorder treatment, especially when combined with other services like group therapy.

Depending on your background and goals for treatment, a medical professional will help you decide if medication would be a good option for you. If the answer is yes, we offer three medication options based on your goals for recovery. Disulfiram and Acamprosate are usually recommended for anyone looking for complete abstinence. They both help decrease cravings and urges to drink and Disulfiram also makes you nauseous if you combine it with alcohol. Naltrexone is more appropriate for those looking to drink in moderation, but maybe not quit. It works by reducing cravings and diminishing the positive effects of alcohol.

If you’d like more information or you’re interested in trying medication, just let us know when you call or text us at (866) 679-0831.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Middlebury, 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, BCBS, Cigna, 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.
