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?

Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is available for opiate addicted patients. We believe that a spiritual program of recovery is needed in order to recover from addiction. We recognize the usefulness of medication in the successful treatment of opiate addiction. All patients seeking addiction treatment at Solas Health are treated with kindness, compassion, dignity and respect. Unlike most clinics that charge large cash payments to patients, we accept most major insurance plans, including North Carolina Medicaid. Please see our insurance page on this website for further details. How does buprenorphine work?

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.
