What People Are Saying About NCSTAR Network

“For a recent college graduate entering the healthcare workforce, the NCSTAR Network has been an ideal introduction to the vital work around addiction and recovery. The team’s passion and expertise have contributed strongly to my awareness of substance use treatment and MOUD to make me a more capable provider during medical school and beyond. And having spent my entire life throughout North Carolina, I feel close to many of our state’s communities and have a strong appreciation for NCSTAR’s wide range of support.”

James Hardy

“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.”

Chrissy Dunn , CPSS

“Starting Point Rural Harm Reduction Collective was a brand-new organization when approached to work with the NC STAR Network 2 years ago. In these 2 years we have built a pathway for our participants to have access to treatment, learn about other programs/resources we never would have thought of, and most of all made friends in the community that truly want to help people recover from whatever ails them. The help, guidance and patience of the STAR Network has helped this young organization thrive from staff to participants and we cannot
thank them enough.”
