NC STAR Network ensures clinicians have the tools they need to treat addiction in their facility.  The academic centers of NCSTAR are staffed with specialty trained physicians and staff who can manage the care of patients with higher level treatment needs.  Partner sites in NCSTAR can consult with the academic centers to learn when and how to make patient referrals to higher level of care.

What People Are Saying About NCSTAR Network

“Thank you for being part of our monthly meeting and offering mentorship to the providers. I’ve gotten only very positive feedback about the meeting! Several people said that the content was not only good, but essential. One provider appreciated that you offered simple solutions/guidance to some complex problems, such as treating ADHD in the presence of illicit stimulant use. I and others liked the way you presented a caveat of lower BZO doses (with taper) associated with possible increase in alcohol use. I am glad that our providers are reaching out more and more to you. Their increased comfort level translates to great patient care.”

“As a Peer Support Specialist and having lived experience in recovery, I continue to see the need for our services and the importance of addiction treatment across the state of North Carolina. Within the NC STAR Network, I have had the amazing opportunity to work with multiple disciplines on how to best assist the state in educating the necessity of medication for opioid use disorder. It has been an honor to watch this Network grow and is extremely impactful as to why I continue with my passion to do this work.”
