’78-year-old prescription drug lord Dr. Alan Summers of Ambler, Pa. has been indicted along with his pharmaceutical drug-peddling accomplices, Dr. Azad Khan, 63, of Villanova, Pa. and Dr. Keyhosrow Parsia, 79, of Ridley Park, Pa.
The drug dealing ring operated under the name NASAPT – the National Association for Substance Abuse, Prevention & Treatment. Pretending to help patients with drug addictions, the con artists instead sold addictive prescription drugs like Suboxone for cash. In a short period of time, they were able to sell $5 million in pills, while getting their clients addicted to them. Every month, nearly 1,000 patients came to Dr. Summer’s pill mill looking for easy drugs. Dr. Summers and his cohorts handed out the pills for cash payments.’
