Understanding the Crime of Doctor Shopping

Most people have never heard of the term "doctor shopping," which is a drug crime committed by those who are addicted to prescription medications. Some of the more common addictive medications include Vicodin, OxyContin (oxycodone), Xanax and Valium. In some situations, the prescribed amount of a drug may eventually become insufficient to satisfy an addict's cravings. As a result, they may decide to visit more than one physician, but tell each doctor that they are seeing no one else. This way, they can receive multiple prescriptions for the same drug in order to satisfy their addiction.

Along with doctor shopping, a prescription drug addict may begin falsifying information about their condition so that their prescription is not canceled. Even after their health has improved, addicts may lie about their condition in order to continue receiving prescriptions. This is known as prescription fraud and is often coupled with doctor shopping. These offenses are listed in the A.R.S. §13-3406 as class 1 misdemeanors and could incur a 6-month prison sentence and a $1,000 fine. Need a lawyer for a doctor shopping charge in Phoenix?
