A doctor allegedly prescribed 600 pain pills for a patient in the course of two weeks. The patient’s family says it helped enable an addiction that ended in tragedy.
CBS 2’s Pam Zekman reports.
The family has filed a lawsuit against two doctors and a pharmacy, alleging the drugs they prescribed and prescriptions they filled over five years ruined his life.
“It’s unbelievable. I mean, it just overwhelmed me, and it made me angry,” says Robert Bauer, the brother of William Bauer.
