RX FRAUD!!

Hi everyone I really need advise NOW! sorry but I'm really scared I'm trying to be strong but I really can't anymore, well I been in the medical field for a long time and for the last 14 years I knowen a DR. and I worked for him for several years then left to worked to another state and for several yrs, then one day I asked him for a job and he said sure so started working, by then I was already addicted to pain pills offcourse he didn't know. He really likes me because I really do a good job for him BUT what he didn't know is that someone was  calling in rx in my name and other ppls names in my family and they were picked up by someone with my license and also put in my insurance. I been back working for him again for over 3 yrs and no problem so far but a ex employee told the doctor that she knew something was going on to check it out, so ofcourse he came to me and ask me if it was me doing it I said no and that I could do a drug test right that minute to prove it, so I did but he also requested his list of all RX's he has written in the past 2 yrs and there were all there so many of them for large amounts I continiued to work there trhough out the hole thing and it's been horrible he finally talked to me on Thu. and asked me again if it was me or if I knew how it was and I told him I didn't do it and I didn't know he really wants to belive me but I don't know I told him that everything points at me and that if he went to the police that for sure I will be the first suspect. But he said he has to make a report with a police even thought he already change everything about his RX and how to authorizethem and stuff.
He really need me right now really cause I'm the only one that is running the clinic cause we don't have a nurse and I do everything nurse, manager and billing and much much more is beeing almost 2 weeks and I can't stand it cause I know that he will go to the police and I will be DONE for sure. And I'm still working in his office and trustes me and we work like nothing is happening but I know that at any min. the police will come to work or home.
What do I do? Please Help any advise? What will happend to me? I haven't use lortabs since 01/09, I'm on sub, and going to therapy and with the help of a pchycologist.
Thanks

he doesnt have to press charges.  Prescription fraud is a felony.

I think if she did it she should go to him first. If he says he is going to fire her and prosecute then get an attorney. No need for an attorney if he doesnt press charges. It happens all the time unfortunately .......

That was my confusion from the beginning      I understood you were not an RN  or in layman's term  did not have the authority to call in any scripts for the doc........   unless the scripts were forged from his med pad  and taken into a pharmacy.    I couldnt understand how you were culpbable  but I think I have it now....    What is the strongest opiate med an ofc can call in ?    my state it is Vicoden     anything stronger takes a handwritten note on the doc's pad...................yep even Perc.  I thought all of that was federal laws.  If That is just my state.......

I would still recommend talking to your employer   and not a bad idea to have an atty.
