In 2016, the Ohio legislature passed a law that regulates opiate recovery clinics. Ohio regulates opiate recovery clinics because they wanted a doctor to be ultimately responsible for the conduct and care in such facilities.
Ohio Regulates Opiate Recovery Clinics To Require Physician Ownership
Previously, opiate recovery clinics could be owned by people who were not licensed physicians. Now, a facility that provides opiate recovery treatment that includes drug-administered assistance, such as suboxone, must be owned by an Ohio licensed medical doctor. Prior to this law, one had to be a doctor to prescribe drugs to wean people off of their drug addiction. Now, this doctor must also own the clinic in which he or she operates.
Ohio Regulates Opiate Recovery Clinics To Require Specific Licenses
Opiate recovery clinics that administer drugs to treat addiction must obtain a license to do so. Such licensing is called a category III terminal distributor of dangerous drugs license. The license must also have an office-based opioid treatment classification.
My office receives a lot of phone calls asking what I charge for a criminal defense or DUI defense. Some of these prospective clients are looking for a cheap criminal defense attorney or a cheap DUI attorney. Some are just trying to get an idea of the range of criminal attorney fees. We happily give them our fee and tell them what we do for that fee. However, it is really difficult to really show them all that we do for that fee. While we have a competitive fee, we are not the lowest fee. We do not want to be the lowest fee because of the loss of professionalism and service that would likely occur if we were to charge such a low fee.
Testimonials and reviews come from hard work and know-how. In looking at testimonials, one should look for signs that the attorney will fight for you and will take the time to do some of the little things that may need done in the case.

Traffic stops cannot be extended for a drug dog sniff. On April 21, 2015, the United States Supreme Court, in Dennys Rodriguez v. United States
, held that police may not keep the motorist waiting after the ticket is written they have no reasonable suspicion justifying the extra time. Essentially, police may not turn routine traffic stops into drug searches using trained dogs. Police officers who stop a car for a traffic violation are justified in “checking the driver’s license, determining whether there are outstanding warrants against the driver, and inspecting the automobile’s registration and proof of insurance.” “These checks serve the same objective as enforcement of the traffic code: ensuring that vehicles on the road are operated safely and responsibly.” A dog sniff is “not an ordinary incident of a traffic stop,” but is instead, “a measure aimed at detecting evidence of ordinary criminal wrongdoing.” (more…)
