I am so sick of these people standing outside these doctor's office's, these are nothing but drug dealers, if you are in pain your dr. will give you med. if thats not enough you are a addict.Working people are sick of it, get a job. I have had surgery,broken bones migraine head aches, I have never taken anything stronger than a motrin,you can deal with a little pain.

Not all of these people are seeking pain meds for personal use. It seems that many are just getting them to sell so that they can make lots of money.

If you know this and I know this, why doesn't our law enforcement know it. This could be stopped, other counties have shut them down, I guess these counties have elected officials that do what they are elected for.

I believe that one physician from a clinic in Paintsville was recently arrested. The same doc used to work for a pain clinic in Pikeville. Law enforcement cannot just decide to shut down any business. There has to be concrete proof and that can sometimes takes years. Look at Dr. Hoover from Williamson, WVa. Wasn't she practicing for years and years before she was finally shut down?

As long as pain doctors document carefully and are cautious who they "prescribe" to, they can get away with unscrupulous practices for years. By the time that they are shut down they have probably made millions of dollars.

This was the state attorney general's ruling on pain clinics.

Yes people r addicts and yes they can work when they act like they cant. But they r so many people as I am 1 that lives in severe chronic pain 24/7 and have been in bed 4 6 years my life ended at 32 years old , I have uncurable disease 2 Accually plus multiple other illness . Every one ain't addicts , but here were I live the people I know of but r not around anymore because I'm a Christian but they can go 2 pain Drs that I have been 2 and these Drs have seen all the medical records I got from C,A 2 Ny and they walk in complaining with a back pain and walk out and get high and sell them. I would give anything 2 work again 2 go back 2 school I had 2 quit both when I became Ill . I do no what u mean it makes me so sick 2 every person I went 2 school with and every friend I had r dead due 2 Drug overdose . It's sad but if they don't want 2 get help it doesn't matter if they r put in rehab until there willing and wanting 2 stop there's nothing anyone can do . I would give anything not 2 half 2 live on medicine and not b on SSI and just no what it's like 2 live again . And people r ruining their lives over drugs unreal .

LnS, I Totally agree with you, I am also really sick and have a disease thats has no cure, this is a crippling disease and I just there was just one day that I didn't have pain. There is so many people out there that don't understand that not everyone that takes pain medicine is a drug addict. I just hope that someday they don't get so sick that they have to take medicine theirself.

Not everyone taking pain pills is abusing them and sticking them up their nose. I had a botched operation in 2000 and was fine until 2003. Then all of sudden it started feeling just like I was being stabbed by a knife. My doctor had me on morphine pills for 6 years, but I got immune to the med and now take no opiates for it, but I am in so much pain I can barely walk some days, Because of the pill epidemic and the fact that I can neither prove nor disprove my pain (like about 80% of all people in chronic pain) my doctor and any pain clinic I have gone too do not want to prescribe me opiates. I suffer instead and it does greatly impact my ability to work. I am speculating, but my best guess is a nerve is sending pain pulses as a result of being damaged in my operation in 2000- BUT there is no "pain test" for people like me it boils down to if a doctor believes me or not, and whenever I get prescribed opiates I get drug tested about every month or so.......

' sure do miss the days when most abused pot and coke instead because this pill epidermic is personally forcing me to suffer badly. Most pain clinics seek patients with BAD BACKS. I once went to a pain clinic in Winchester Ky with my medical records showing I had been on morphine for 6 years and a lot more, yet they still did not know what to do with me because 90% of their patients suffered from BAD BACKS and most patients simply brought in their MRI and that was all they needed to do. I brought in 10 years of records showing I have been in pain all this time (almost 10) and they wanted nothing to do with me. Around Morehead most doctors here are scared to death to prescribe most opiates no matter what is wrong. I would like to move to Pikeville someday, so I surely hope it's not as hard to get treatment there as it is in Morehead.

I honestly know how you feel and there is an excellent doctor in Pikeville, he works for Pikeville hospital, if you were here he could really help you. I suffer every single day of my life and I will also pray for you.

You have a warped view of life, thinking what others do is any of your buisness. You say "working people" are fed up as if you are a spokesperson on behalf of all working people. GET A LIFE

How can you say this has anything to do with poverty, if you are a drug addict you are poor, drugs are very expensive, the children living with these people are the real victims, I have a family member that goes to these pain clinics, he is to lazy to be a man and get a job he thinks he has to have a pill for everything, poor excuse for a man and father, his kids are nine and twelve, they have no respect for him, you said this is thier business, well you let one of these leaches on society drive away from one of these pain clinics and hit one of my children, and they will need pain meds. How many young people do we have to bury before people open their eyes and say we are sick of it. People that have cancer need pain meds. and they can get it from a real Dr. If a real Dr. will not give you pain meds. you don't need it, toughen up.
