“The treatment of addiction helps restore an individual’s independence from drugs and good health, so they can go back to their families and be productive members in our society,” said Special Agent in Charge Kevin W. Carter of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Miami Field Division. “Physicians and other medical professionals, who hold positions of trust within our communities, will absolutely be held accountable for violations of that trust.”
