(MYRTLE BEACH) In 2013, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) launched an investigation of then-president-elect of the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) Lynn R. Webster, MD, related to overdose deaths at Webster’s Lifetree Pain Clinic in Salt Lake City. It was alleged there were up to 100 deaths at Webster’s clinic which was raided by the DEA.  Webster attributed the deaths to “suicide” and the pain clinic closed its doors.  The U.S. Attorney for the District of Utah declined to pursue charges, effectively ending the DEA investigation.  US Senator Orrin Hatch (Utah) was rumored to be the force behind charges being dropped against Webster.
