Optiate addiction and kickbacks are to TOTALLY different issues. If this was of recent vintange you would have a HUGE credibility issue claiming you were oblivious to the potential addiction to opiates as its plastered everywhere starting with the pharmacy documents. If you are claiming the doctor malpracticed by prescribing opiate pain pills you will need to have another physicians opinion to support that in writing, including determination that you are now an opioid addict, and then have same reviewed by a lawyer.
