Healing Together: Alcoholism (AUD) Recovery Based on Compassion

Seeking treatment for alcohol use disorder (AUD) can often come with unnecessary judgment from friends, family, or even the medical community. That’s why Better Life Partners is dedicated to bringing judgment-free, compassionate care to anybody looking to recover from AUD. We use a harm reduction-based philosophy to guide our alcohol treatment program, which means you can feel safe coming to us as you are. We promise not to judge you, turn you away, or kick you out of our program.

We’re getting rid of the barriers that often prevent individuals from getting confidential, supportive care for alcoholism. Abstinence is not required to get started with treatment, and we won’t ever judge you for relapses–we understand that AUD is complex, and recovery isn’t always linear. There are also no waitlists, which means you can start your recovery journey immediately after you call or text us.

If you want, you can also participate in other programs alongside ours. We don’t believe that there’s a one-size-fits-all solution to alcohol use disorder, so if you want to get additional support from an AA group or another support group, you’re free to do that! Better Life Partners prioritizes your needs when you get care with us, which means that we want you to do whatever is best for you. No matter what your goals for recovery might be–whether it’s abstinence, drinking in moderation, or something else–we’ll be right there with you.

Call or text us right now at (866) 679-0831, we’re ready to support you in whatever ways we can.

Getting started with (optional) medication for alcohol use disorder (AUD):

Some of our members want to try using medication to support them during their alcohol use disorder (AUD) recovery journey. Even so, medication is never required for you to get treatment for AUD, but some find it to be a helpful resource for them. If you decide medication might be a good option for you, you’ll meet with a licensed professional for a medication evaluation. We’ll support you throughout the whole process to ensure your recovery looks the way you want it to.

At Better Life Partners, we provide three different medications for alcohol use disorder. You’ll work with a professional to decide which option is best for your situation. Here’s a brief overview of the medications we offer:

  • Disulfiram (Antabuse): We recommend this medication to those who want to abstain from drinking alcohol entirely. It works by reducing cravings and making your body extra sensitive to alcohol.
  • Acamprosate (Campral): This is another medication that works well for those whose goal is abstinence. It works by reducing cravings and urges to drink.
  • Naltrexone: We recommend this medication to members looking to drink in moderation. It reduces cravings and also weakens the pleasant effects of alcohol to make drinking less desirable.

If you’d like to learn more about medications for alcohol use disorder, just give us a call or text at (866) 679-0831, we’re always happy to help!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Better Life Partners located in York, Maine?

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