How Does Medication-Assisted Treatment Work?
At Better Life Partners, many of our members use medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to treat their opioid use disorder. We prescribe Suboxone, which is a medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) made up of buprenorphine and naloxone. MAT is a form of whole-person care, which means that it combines MOUD with behavioral therapy, it has been shown to be a safe and effective way of treating opioid addiction.
We prescribe Suboxone for MAT, which comes in the form of a sublingual film and is safe to be used in long-term and short-term treatments. Studies have shown that Suboxone can help lessen the unpleasant side effects of withdrawal along with reducing the likelihood of opioid overdose deaths.
When you use MAT with Better Life Partners, you have a clinician guiding you throughout the process. You also have access to weekly group counseling meetings–which have virtual and in-person options–so you don’t have to go through treatment alone.
Call/text us today at (866) 679-0831 to see if medication-assisted treatment with Suboxone is a good fit for you, we’re ready to start treatment whenever you are.

More Information About Waterville
About Waterville, ME
Waterville is a city in Kennebec County, Maine, United States, on the west bank of the Kennebec River. The city is home to Colby College and Thomas College. As of the 2020 census the population was 15,828. Along with Augusta, Waterville is one of the principal cities of the Augusta-Waterville, ME Micropolitan Statistical Area. == History == The area now known as Waterville was once inhabited by the Canibas tribe of the Abenaki people. Called "Taconnet" after Chief Taconnet, the main village was located on the east bank of the Kennebec River at its confluence with the Sebasticook River at what is now Winslow. Known as "Ticonic" by English settlers, it was burned in 1692 during King William's War, after which the Canibas tribe abandoned the area. Fort Halifax was built by General John Winslow in 1754, and the last skirmish with indigenous peoples occurred on May 18, 1757.The township would be organized as Kingfield Plantation, then incorporated as Winslow in 1771. When residents on the west side of the Kennebec found themselves unable to cross the river to attend town meetings, Waterville was founded from the western parts of Winslow and incorporated on June 23, 1802. In 1824 a bridge was built joining the communities.
