“WE ARE HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS, NOT STREET DRUG DEALERS“
THE STRUGGLE OF TWO CAMPS MEDICAL SCIENCE VS, BAFFLING BS FABRICATIONS
“Their opioid epidemic has nothing to do with legal prescriptions, it’s all about illegal fentanyl and they lumped legal with illegal opiates“
The Dilemma we face
“I’ve said it since I became aware of the 2016 Guidelines. Doctors and Nurse Practitioners needed to unite for the good of all humanity !!!! Why haven’t they Steve Ariens ??!!!!”
Anne Turner over the last 20 yrs +/- most prescribers have become just EMPLOYEES of large healthcare corporations and the licensing boards of these prescribers the people on those boards know that the DEA can come after them and fabricate a case against them. These healthcare corporations get reimbursed about 85% off for a mid-level ( ARNP, PA, NP) to provide a pt service than an MD. I suspect that a mid-levels pay package is < 85% of what an MD’s is..
I suspect that these healthcare corporations – with the exception of certain specialists – would rather have mid-levels providing a higher & higher percent of pt care. The overhead cost of an office practice is very expensive … our 6 prescriber PCP practice – which was highly automated… sold out to the local hospital abt 10 yrs ago because the partners in the practice were making less and less money – while seeing more and more pts.
I suspect that all of these large healthcare employees are being told… practice medicine as we dictate… or find another job.. Just look at some prescribers when they wanted to prescribe some meds off label in treating COVID-19 because they were going against what ended up being POLITICAL SCIENCE
COURTS IGNORE THE FACTS OVER DEA-DOJ FABRICATION
GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED IGNORANCE
A colleague shared your recent article (below). Please be aware that Andrew Kolodny is one of the most hated and reviled figures in American Medicine. He is arguably an accessory to thousands of negligent homicides among patients denied treatment for chronic pain due to his fraudulent misrepresentations in US courts. Likewise, the “public nuisance” argument has been conclusively thrown out by at least three US courts that found no cause-and-effect relationship between prescribing and either substance use disorder or overdose-related mortality.
I speak and write as a subject matter expert in this area of public policy, with over 150 papers, articles, and interviews published in a mix of mainstream medical journals and popular media. I have 26 years of hands-on experience as a creator and moderator of peer-to-peer support groups for chronic pain patients and their families. Feel free to come chat. I can give you ample material for follow-up articles.
You may sample from my published work via the link in my signature below.
Cordial best regards of the Easter season.

What Kolodny has done will go down as the worse human atrocity of our age committed by a psychiatrist in collusion with our government agency for money. The amount of medical torture, medical torture to death the weakest in society, our medically ill, have forcibly endured, should never ever be allowed nor sanctioned again.
Thousands have been willfully tortured to death when the physical pain from their medical conditions is a 100 % treatable medical condition.
Again the worse PREVENTABLE human atrocity ever committed OF OUR DECADE. Psychiatry, unfortunately, but realistically has a long history of abusing those who cannot defend themselves, and it has been allowed to happen again, with our government’s help, and the sanctioning of it by the very people who were supposed to never let it happen in the 1st place..JMO, There should be a memorial erected right in front of the surgeons’ general office for our dead, as a reminder to never allow this to happen again,mary
THE STATE ON MAINTAINING IGNORANCE:
6My people are destroyed
for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I will also reject you as My priests.
Since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I will also forget your children.
FROM THE BOOK OF STEVE
“To Whom It May Concern”
I am a licensed medical professional who was working in Rheumatology when all the opioid rules changed.
The damage done to these patients who were in DIRE need of pain control is irreparable and most of those I had to cut off and send to pain clinics, were then treated SO TERRIBLY and accused of being a drug seekers? Well, a lot of those people are now gone and suffered terribly by not being adequately treated or even treated humanely, as they once were, as they contorted and shriveled in pain to their demise at the hands of “officials” making decisions for all based on data from drug abuse from these same drugs without consideration of those in actual need. FOR SHAME! Lumping all into one.
Deciding for all because abuse by some dictates that well then,,,, aren’t these “bad drugs?” NO! And strict guidelines by an agency that I truly admire, frighten doctors into NOT treating patient’s pain as they once DID and should STILL be so that many doctors, including my own, opted to retire knowing the government would not allow them to actually help their patients any longer at the risk of losing their licenses!!!
My doctor did not want to retire but she also did not want to NOT be able to “doctor!” The federal government has lost many great docs because of making rules without knowing or considering patients’ needs. Other doctors would, however, take their place, send them to pain clinics and call it a day. These negative affectations about pain are not overly attractive because pain is not overly attractive and destroys people’s lives.
These are throw-away patients now. Most of them do not seek out help now because they have been turned down so many times and made to feel “less than” because they must live with pain so extreme it has broken them where they can longer work, no longer dress themselves, cook, drive, feed, sleep, think and seemingly, simply exist, in a loop of pain, until they succumb, one way or another…..and there IS medicine.
But you, the patient, cannot have it now, even if it has been prescribed and has helped tremendously before, if the doctor prescribes it or what others may think is too much, the doctor will get in trouble or be reviewed or lose their license….and the patient is obviously a “druggie.”
Now let’s move on to alternative drugs being given instead of the appropriate opioid treatment without fear of retribution or labeling…..go ahead,,,, and say it!
Opioid treatment without fear of retribution or labeling! Doesn’t that feel good!? Like a breath of fresh air! Was that the sound of HOPE!?
I absolutely could, and WOULD, go into every NON-applicable drug that has been thrown into the gambit of attempted nonapplicable/non-appropriate
treatment options are given to patients to keep doctors out of trouble and give it the old “let’s see if this one works therapy. I know because I was forced to write scripts for probably every one of them for patients who simply wanted to continue their current therapy that was being fine-tuned or was working or at least working well enough to keep them a functional part of society. I was the bad guy, the doctor was the bad guy, the patients calling in tears or in so much pain begging for their prior prescriptions that our office could no longer give.
Many times I explained the new guidelines that even I did not agree with and I soon left this practice for a teaching position. It was an opportunity, but it was also a chance to get out of the line of fire the CDC had created. Like many great doctors, I retired from medical rather than not be able to help with the correct treatment, the correct meds, the correct mindset about good patient care and working to assure the best possible outcomes. This ability was taken away by the federal government by way of the CDC by taking the voice away from the patient and giving it over to an agency that doesn’t know them, recognize their needs, or treat them with appropriate medicine without fear of retribution or labeling.
Just one mention, however, Gabapentin is the WORST and is being used the most. It is a radiculopathy drug – radicul/o = spinal nerve root and the thinking here is that if the pain can be stopped at the nerve root it will not travel or possibly even occur beyond this point in the patient. This is so wrong and in the elderly population this drug is extremely dangerous, yet doctors continue to prescribe it because “it’s all they have left.” The options for the doctor to treat appropriately are no longer available, and the patient suffers and loses faith. This leads to a very downward spiral in some instances.
Did anyone at the CDC really think the same treatment, categorization, thoughtless care, and consideration from a government agency that seems to think patient outcomes are unimportant?
Please think again.”
