Demolition begins at site of alleged pill-mill scheme — 5 details

Riverside (Ill.) Pain Management's former building is being demolished, the Riverside-Brookfield Landmark reports.

Five details:

1. Riverside Pain Management shuttered in early 2017 when its physicians were accused of running a massive pill-mill operation. They allegedly distributed hundreds of thousands of opioids throughout the state and elsewhere.

2. One physician was convicted of insurance fraud. He is expected to receive a prison sentence in August.

3. Joseph Giacchino, who operated Riverside Pain Management, had his medical license revoked by the state.

4. There are no immediate plans for the former pain clinic building, which was built in 1930. It housed a post office and grocery store before Riverside Pain Management took occupancy in 2013.

5. Demolition began May 16.
