DEA Registration Defense and Enforcement Actions

March 18, 2022 DEA Defense Lawyers

Medical professionals often prescribe controlled substances to patients – and pharmacies are responsible for dispensing the drugs to patients. All of this must be done in compliance with the Controlled Substances Act. Healthcare providers involved in prescribing, or dispensing, must be registered with the DEA. If the DEA finds a provider has violated the CSA, it could take enforcement actions. There could be a loss of DEA registration, which can furthermore impact your ability to provide medical services.

At the Spodek Law Group, we understand how difficult it can be if you’re facing enforcement actions by the DEA. We can help you understand your options. We have experience dealing with controlled substances and licensed defense for pharmacies and healthcare providers. Our goal is to help defend your DEA registration, while also addressing other potential pitfalls you may encounter.

Types of DEA Enforcement Actions

The DEA can choose to pursue an enforcement action based on information it uncovers during an audit, or investigation. If the DEA is under the impression that you are not in compliance with the CSA, or if it finds evidence that you committed illegal actions, like unlawful dispensing, or unlawfully prescribing controlled substances, it can take one or more actions.

  • It can suspend or revoke your DEA registration
  • It can deny your DEA registration, or it’s renewal
  • It can request you to surrender your DEA registration
  • Potential disciplinary action taken against your medical license
  • Financial fines
  • Criminal charges and jail time
