I have been fired from my employment position because I was accused of or caught diverting controlled substances. What kind of trouble am I facing?

The potential for the filing of criminal charges by state or federal authorities, the filing of misconduct charges by your licensing agency, an attempt by the DEA to revoke your controlled substances prescribing privileges, and the loss of your ability to seek reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid are all possibilities. You need representation immediately to intervene on your behalf and help you wade through the process. Whether you deny the allegations or want help and to get into recovery, this is not a situation you should handle by yourself. Moreover, once you are represented, the authorities are prohibited from talking to you unless you knowingly waive your right to have counsel present.
