Topic Background:

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is responsible for the enforcing of federal laws and DEA regulations pertaining to the administering, dispensing, and prescribing of controlled substances by a practitioner as part of pain management treatment plan.

Every day medical offices are being targeted by law enforcement as “Pill Mills” because of the drug being dispensed or prescribed to patients. By DEA definitions a practitioner includes a Medical Doctor, a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, a Physician Assistant, and a Nurse Practitioner that are license by the State in which they practice. Many legitimate clinics and practitioners have been a target of an investigation by law enforcement based only on a single prescription, the quantity dispensed, or through an interview of a patient who was dismissed as a patient for not complying with the patient agreement.

Today’s practitioners treating pain need to take the necessary steps to prevent the diversion of prescribed medication to a patient being treated for that pain. These steps are essentials to comply with federal laws and DEA regulations and the policies established by the State Medical Board or the Board of Pharmacy.
