In an article by Reuters (7/30), Florida pain doctors convicted of money laundering, two doctors who were charged with contributing to the overdose of nine patients, were acquitted by U.S. District Court, Fort Lauderdale, FL, Federal Case no. 2011-8342, in the overdose deaths of nine people but were convicted of money laundering. Dr. Cynthia Cadet was charged with the overdose deaths of seven patients and Dr. Joseph Castronuovo was charged with the deaths of two others. Both could have received life sentences had they been convicted.

In the United States, prescription drug abuse has reached epic proportions. An addict's dependency on pain killers usually starts with one doctor authorized prescription but can soon escalate to a life threatening problem. Only a certified, 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village is qualified to assist clients who are suffering from prescription drug issues. Anyone who is experiencing a problem with prescription drugs should check into this state-of-the-art facility before it's too late.

As reported in Florida pain doctors convicted of money laundering, defense lawyers argued during Federal Case no. 2011-8342 that both doctors were practicing medicine in accordance with state laws, which permits licensed physicians to disburse pain killers without penalties.
