Beshear Files Civil Lawsuit Against Drug Treatment Clinic

On Friday, February 9, 2018, Attorney General Andy Beshear filed a civil lawsuit in Breathitt Circuit Court against an alleged rogue drug treatment clinic for Medicaid fraud, harmful business practices, and illegal distribution of an addictive drug. The lawsuit alleges that four owners of The Recovery Center, with locations in Frankfort, Hazard, Jackson, Mount Sterling, London, Paintsville, and Richmond, illegally prescribed Buprenorphine or Suboxone to thousands of Kentucky Medicaid patients. Beshear alleged that the clinic, while properly registered with the state to do business, illegally profited from Kentucky’s Medicaid program by falsely claiming it offered patients legally required medical advice and individualized treatment with each prescription. The lawsuit claims The Recovery Center carried out its illegal activity between April 2015 through February 2018.
