Treating Doctors as Drug Dealers: The Drug Enforcement Administration’s War on Prescription Painkillers
By Ronald T. Libby
This article appeared in the Spring 2006 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Since 2001, the federal government has accelerated its pursuit of physicians it alleges are contributing to an increase of prescription-drug addiction. These highly publicized indictments and prosecutions have frightened many physicians out of the field of pain management, exacerbating an already serious health crisis—the widespread undertreatment of severe chronic pain.
