Optional medications for alcohol use disorder are available today!
Medication-assisted treatment for alcoholism, or AUD, is one of the many optional resources we’re able to offer to our members. This is not a requirement to be in our program, but some of our members find it to be an integral part of their recovery and studies prove it’s both safe to use and effective.
We offer three different medications at Better Life Partners. They all work a little differently and are aimed at different goals, but here is a brief overview:
- Naltrexone is recommended to those whose goal is moderation, but not necessarily abstinence. It works by reducing the pleasant effects felt as a result of drinking and also decreases cravings.
- Acamprosate (Campral) is aimed at members whose goal is abstinence and works by limiting cravings and urges to drink.
- Disulfiram (Antabuse), like Acamprosate, is best for those whose goal is abstinence. It works by making the body extra sensitive to alcohol and also limits cravings and urges to drink.
If medication-assisted treatment for alcohol use disorder is medically appropriate for you, you’ll have the full support of a clinician to guide you throughout the process. You’ll meet with them at least once a month to make sure everything is going smoothly, and you’ll also have support from your group counseling sessions. Again, medication is completely optional and your choice to make.
If you have questions or think you’re ready to get started, call or text us at (866) 679-0831.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Better Life Partners located in Winchendon, 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.
