    1 Sanction

    • Substance Abuse  (1/27/2003)
    • Action Taken: Surrender
    • Summary: Dr. Natalear Rolline Collins, Lic #0000-27108


      Over the years, Dr. Collins has suffered from alcohol and drug abuse. As a result, Dr. Collins and the Board have entered into Consent Orders three times from 1996 to 1997 restricting and/or limiting her practice. In July 2000, she was relieved of the restrictions of the Consent Orders based on evidence of her progress in fighting alcohol and drug abuse.

      In January 2003, a Board investigator and Raleigh police officers interviewed Dr. Collins regarding a suspicious prescription for Vicodin that Dr. Collins wrote for a patient. She first claimed the prescription was justified. She then admitted she was with the patient when the drug was dispensed and she and the patient shared the medication.
