Suboxone Specialist

Dr. Francis C. Corrigian and the specialists at Solas Health—with offices located in Pinehurst, Cary, and Fayetteville, North Carolina—recommend Suboxone (buprenorphine) for their medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program targeting opiate addiction. They believe the judicious use of this medication provides an opportunity for recovery from drug addiction and the chaos it creates.

Suboxone Q&A

What’s medication-assisted treatment for drug addiction?

Solas Health has 10 buprenorphine certified providers, and we provide medication assisted treatment of opioid use disorder at all locations.  All substance use disorder patients will have a thorough medical evaluation.   We will develop and customized treatment plan based on each patient’s individual needs.  Because we are in network with more than 25 different insurances, including Medicaid, so most insured patients never have to pay more than their copay or deductible in order to have the best treatment available.  We believe that our style of outpatient treatment will provide the best medical evidence-based care possible.

The medication prevents opiate withdrawal syndrome. The significant physical discomfort caused by this syndrome is the reason many individuals give for failing to conquer their addiction.

Early symptoms of opiate withdrawal occur in the first 24 hours after stopping the drug and include:

  • Muscle aches
  • Restlessness
  • Anxiety
  • Runny nose
  • Excessive sweating
  • Inability to sleep
  • Frequent yawning

Symptoms occurring after the first full day off opiates are typically more intense and include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping with nausea and vomiting
  • Dilated pupils
  • Blurry vision
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Elevated blood pressure

Is Suboxone safe?

The FDA has approved Suboxone for treating opiate addiction. The experienced healthcare team at Solar Health believes the drug is quite safe when used judiciously and as prescribed. As is the case with any drug, including those as commonplace as antibiotics, side effects can occur. Misuse of the drug can create potentially serious medical issues. However, should you choose to take Suboxone, the team at Solas Health will monitor your progress closely and evaluate your physical health frequently. Dr. Corrigan invites individuals interested in hearing more about Suboxone to contact the offices of Solas Health for an evaluation and consultation regarding MAT in general and the use of Suboxone as an aid in overcoming opiate addiction.
