US Attorney General to Go After Doctors who Overprescribe Opioids

Speaking at a forum hosted by the American Conservative Union Foundation and the Cardinal Institute, Attorney General Jeff Sessions unveiled new pieces of the Opioid Fraud and Abuse Detection Unit, designed to combat the overprescribing of painkillers, a suspected culprit behind America’s drug scourge.

“I have assigned 12 experienced prosecutors to focus solely on investigating and prosecuting opioid-related health care in a dozen hot-spot locations around the country, places where they are especially needed,” he said. “And you will be pleased to know, I think, that Southern West Virginia is one of those. You will have another prosecutor, whose focus will totally be opioid related health care problems.”
