The Doctor Who Intentionally Got Patients Addicted to Drugs
Prescription drug addiction is a huge problem in the medical industry, and that problem isn’t made easier when doctors realize they can get rich by getting their patients addicted.
Pain management physician Mladen Antolic had access to controlled substances ranging from Schedules II through V, which means he could write prescriptions for cocaine, morphine, oxycodone, and methamphetamines. It wasn’t long before he realized this gave him a lot of power, which he could exploit for both money and sex.
Antolic prescribed addictive drugs to young, attractive women without explaining their risks (and often without a legitimate reason to prescribe them.) Not long after that, his patients were hooked, leaving Antolic in a position to satisfy their cravings. He invited them to lavish parties where he would give them drugs for sexual favors.
Eventually, someone sent an anonymous letter to the DEA accusing the doctor of running a “pill mill.” As the investigation unfolded, authorities soon discovered that Antolic wasn’t just prescribing pills like candy, but also distributing them from his house for money and sex. He was arrested on over a dozen charges in 2010, and his medical license was suspended.
Despite facing up to 156 years for his crimes, Antolic was able to secure a plea bargain that allowed him to get away with only ten years in prison. (Source)
- Aria, who is 10. She is a part of the “reincarnationverse” I have with videofaciemfuturae. She is the daughter of Erik and Christine. It is set in the modern times, and in the universe she is in Erik is often reincarnated, because Anna, who is Erik’s wife and soul mate, usually reincarnates (was cursed to reincarnate) but was cursed (another curse) and made into a ghost that was slowly faded away, when Erik who was also a ghost, and who fell in love with her, sacrificed a part of his soul to save her from fading away completely (at some point she also ends up giving him a piece of her soul). Erik does not always remember his past lives, and most of the time requires at least a little bit of assistance from Anna. In this lifetime, he couldn’t remember at all, and so he got married to Christine and had two children with her (Aria, and her younger brother Gustave) before meeting Anna for the first time in this lifetime, and she later helps him regain his memories.
- Annabelle and Gerard have not been born or even conceived yet, but are possible future children of videofaciemfuturae’s Anna and Cherik (Charles Dance’s Erik, played on my Cherik account likeblacknessitself). Annabelle is named after her mother, Anna, and her grandmother Belladova, and Gerard is named after his grandfather, Gerard Carriere.
- Antole is the son of Christine (wakingsilentandresigned) and Raoul, and is being raised by Christine and Erik, who are now married, though Christine takes him to visit Raoul some times. When Christine decided to stay with Erik instead of leaving with Raoul, Christine moved in with Erik and was engaged to him, but since this was all so very new to Erik, and of course he has his issues, they had many fights. One night, Christine left. She was gone for about a day. She stayed the night with Raoul. When she came back the next day, Erik was so relieved that he didn’t ask her where she had been or try to question it. He didn’t want to know, he was just glad she came back. A few months later, though, he had found out what happened that night, as she told him that she was pregnant, and he knew it could not have been his, since they had not been intimate in that way yet.
