How to Know If You Are Under Investigation

In a typical criminal case, a physician will be told they are under investigation by a law enforcement agency, most likely the DEA. For a pain management or addiction clinic to be under investigation, the process might look differently. It is likely you will be told you are being audited by the state PMP (Prescription Monitoring Program) Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), a state-level agency, or a medical provider review board. In many cases, an audit is just the first preliminary step to a criminal investigation, so you should act as soon as possible to get the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer.

If you do not protect yourself and you are eventually convicted of a prescription crime, the consequences could include:

  • Immediate seizure and loss of all personal/ business assets(including bank accounts)
  • Extensive time in prison
  • High fines paid to the Federal and/or state governments
  • Removal of your license to practice
  • Probationary period if license is reinstated
