Publisher Description

Do no harm?

There is an innate trust built into us since childhood that our doctor spent years learning and studying how to help people. But what if that trust is broken? Are they all brought to justice for the confidences they’ve betrayed and the countless lives they’ve helped ruin?

In Healers or Dealers?, readers get a front-row seat to the jaw-dropping true accounts written by the retired investigator who experienced them and attempted to hold these doctors accountable. His stories show a direct correlation between doctors’ questionable conduct with illegal administrating, dispensing, and prescribing of opioids and the craze that plagues our nation today. Couple this with the addictions that unwaveringly rival those we see in the worst of America’s inner cities…

and a pharmaceutical opioid epidemic is born.  

"In these pages, Allison compiles 22 of his most compelling cases in a chilling narrative of medical and pharmaceutical corruption...His stories are as absorbing as a police procedural as he describes the work of undercover agents, sting operations, corrupt judges who refused to sign warrants against physicians they knew, and doctors and pharmacists who covered for colleagues. His attitudes are firmly grounded in law and procedure, but he also effectively reveals how he takes his mission to heart, offering respectful advice for a drug addict physician who confesses and cooperates and admitting lifelong regret regarding a pharmacist he was unable to indict...An engrossing look into the work of those who investigate flagrant medical malpractice." - Kirkus Reviews

"Absolutely maddening! Unbelievable. I knew some doctors were bad but I truly had no idea of the extent of the pill/drug trade some of them engage in. Richard Allison has written a truly engrossing book detailing his years as an investigator with Mississippi's state medical board. Readers will be absolutely shocked at what some doctors get away with and the lengths they go to keep their illegal drug use and overprescribing active...It is well worth the read." -Inkysreviews Blog

"Some doctors make mistakes which are totally accidental. A few other doctors are intentional in their mistakes; fueled by greed, they kneel at the altar of the almighty dollar. I call them "dragons". This is a book about slaying those "dragons". -Jones E. Allison Jr. "Pete", United States Secret Service, Special Agent - Retired

"Healers or Dealers? is a book that clearly reveals how bad doctors divert and/or overprescribe pharmaceutical opioids, thus fueling the current epidemic. " - Sammy Webb, Director of the Youth Drug Court, Desoto County, Mississippi, former Chief of Police, Senatobia, Mississippi, and former criminal investigator for the 17th Judicial District in Mississippi

"Richard's meticulous investigations described in this book point out the horrendous, widespread misuse of prescribing practices, allowing just a small percentage of licensed doctors to feed an opioid epidemic." -Steve Campbell, Author of Once We Were Aces. Captain, Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, Retired; Captain, Harrison County Sheriff's Department, Professional Standards Supervisor, Retired
