Chris G. Carter, MPAS, PA-C is an Addiction Specialist that is a licensed Board Certified Physician Assistant in MA and NH who specializes in Addiction Medicine and Psychiatry. He holds a Masters Degree in Physician Assistant Studies and treats both Opioid and Alcohol dependencies.
Chris is located at our clinic primarily in Salem, NH, and is available to see new patients in MA as needed. He brings much experience of over 20 years and exclusively practices Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opiate Use Disorder, including Suboxone® and Sublocade®. Additionally, he is specialized in Alcohol Use Disorder utilizing Vivitrol®. He got his start in Family Medicine and discovered through an opportunity presented in an inpatient Psychiatry setting that it helped him prepare for his current role today. He believes that he has found his niche and that it has been the most fulfilling patient-centered work that he has done to date. His ultimate goal is to bring out the best in others by assisting our patients with combatting their addiction process and to make them a better person, be more productive in life, enjoy their families, and most importantly, giving them the insight to regain control of their life.
When Chris isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children exploring new seasonal appropriate activities. His proudest accomplishments are his family and his ability to give others hope to seek freedom from Substance Use Disorder (SUD).
