A doctor from Dracut is facing an  involuntary manslaughter charge after a woman died from an overdose of  opioids he prescribed.  

Dr. Richard Miron allegedly continued to provide  the woman with opioids even though she had overdosed in the past.  

An  investigation was launched when Miron was found to be the largest  provider of high dose oxycodone prescriptions in the state. 

 Miron also allegedly and  illegally prescribed opioids to other at-risk patients  with no legitimate medical purpose.
