Dr Tennant Legal Defense Fund

$20,917 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 94 people in 2 months
Created December 11, 2017
Forest Tennant, MD, DrPH, is an internist who specializes in the research and treatment of intractable chronic pain. Dr. Tennant has operated a pain clinic in West Covina, California for over 40 years, and has authored over 300 scientific articles and books on pain management.

Dr. Tennant is revered in the pain community because of his willingness to treat patients from around the country who have been abandoned by other doctors or have complex conditions such as arachnoiditis that are difficult to treat.

In November 2017, DEA agents raided the home and offices of Dr. Tennant, using a search warrant that alleged he was part of a drug trafficking organization and running a pill mill. The allegations would be laughable if they weren’t so serious and reflect a fundamental lack of knowledge about Dr. Tennant’s practice. Many of his patients require high doses of opioids and other medications, and would die without them.

Dr. Tennant has not been charged with a crime, but he deserves to have the best legal representation possible to defend himself and his reputation.

Please consider a donation to Dr. Tennant’s defense fund. Lives depend on keeping this good man in practice.

I have increased the Defense Fund goal to reflect what Dr. Tennant has spent to date for his legal representation which is costing his around $1000 per day. He has not yet been charged with any crime and this attack may be more about the focus of his research than we realized since his research is focused on the treatment of an iatrojenic disease adhesive arachnoiditis.
Please do what you can to support Dr. Tennant and do what you can to encourage others to do so.

I would like to thank you for showing support for an honest doctor who is in the buiness of saving lives. This harassment by the DEA has had a terrible impact upon the lives of his patients who as a rule are some very sick people.

I am happy to say that doctor Tennants clinic remains open and his reasearch into developing a treatment protocal for adhesive arachnoiditis will continue. Because of the California Pain Patients Bill of Rights , California State has the strictest opioid regulations in the nation, even stricter than the 2006 CDC guideline.
Your contributions will help ensure that his research, research that touches the lives of millions of adhesive arachnoiditis patients will continue.

On behalf of Dr Tennant I want to thank everyone for your generous donations to the legal defence fund. I talked to Dr Tennant this evening after he spent the day with attourneys. News of the Go Fund "made my day"
He was so pleased with all the support everyone is showing. He suggested we all study the California Pain Patients Bill of Rights which has been California law for about 20 years. Apparently the DEA believes only they can say what treatment a patient can recieve and not the doctor. I am hopful that a patients right to non standard treatment when all else fails will finally be established in a court of law and we can get the lifesaving treatment we need to stay alive
