  • We believe that you should have a variety of resources at your disposal during treatment. The dozens of options we provide our members include counseling for mental health (such as cognitive behavioral therapy), optional medication treatment for AUD, supportive group counseling—and many more! Sometimes, members also participate in other programs (e.g. AA) at the same time as ours. We offer you diverse options to reflect your diverse needs!

Harm Reduction Alcohol Treatment Program in Watertown, MA

We base our treatment program on harm reduction at Better Life Partners: this means that we will meet you exactly where you are, without judging or punishing you. We understand that no two people have the same recovery experience, and that is okay! Whether you want to be abstinent, cut back on alcohol use, or pursue another healthy goal, your goals are valid. We’ll be here for you with empathetic, non-judgmental support on your journey through recovery.

Our primary goal is to offer you the resources you want and need. We will never punish you for not being abstinent, relapsing, or missing meetings; we will instead make sure you’re set up with resources, e.g. by rescheduling meetings for you ASAP if necessary. You can leave our program whenever you’d like to, and you’re always welcome back. Your welcoming community at Better Life Partners is ready to cheer you on, just as you are!

Our non-punitive alcohol use treatment is available to you today—call or text us now at (866) 679-0831!

Start optional medication treatment for alcohol use disorder (AUD) today in Watertown, MA

Do you want to learn more about medication treatment for alcohol use disorder (AUD) and/or start treatment today? Call us ASAP at (866) 679-0831! For many members, medication is an effective tool alongside some of the other care options we offer.

Many other members don’t take medication—you are never required to take medication in order to get care with us. If you are interested in medication-assisted treatment for AUD, we will set up a meeting right away with a clinician who can talk you through our medication options.

To members who want to take medication, we offer these three medication options for alcohol use disorder:

  • Naltrexone: Naltrexone works best for people who would like to reduce their alcohol use but don’t necessarily want to abstain from alcohol completely.
  • Acamprosate: This medication, which reduces your cravings and urges to drink, is most useful for folks who want to fully abstain from alcohol.
  • Disulfiram: Like Acamprosate, this medication is most appropriate to help with abstinence. It causes your body to be extremely sensitive to alcohol, which means that drinking alcohol leads to unpleasant symptoms.

These medications have been shown in many studies to be effective at treating AUD and safe for your body. Often, members who try medication-assisted treatment find it to be a helpful treatment tool in addition to our other community-based options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in Watertown, 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. 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, 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.
