Anyone who remembers the story of Kenny Chatman will no doubt remember the terrible name he gave to meth and opioid rehab in Florida. However, for those who don’t remember, CNBC will be featuring his story in the true-crime program American Greed on July 2. Chatman, now 47, used a string of drug rehab clinics and treatment centers he owned in order to traffic women. He would keep addicts addicted to drugs and charge insurance companies for the treatment, and use his female clients as prostitutes, and use the sober homes as brothels, filled with drugs. Authorities were presumably tipped off by a news story posted by The Palm Beach Post, which Chatman attempted to sue for defamation before being arrested. He is now serving a 27-year federal sentence at the Coleman medium-security prison in Sumterville. The special will air at 10 p.m. EST.
The saga of Kenny Chatman, a symbol of South Florida’s largely corrupt drug treatment industry, will be featured Monday on the CNBC true-crime series American Greed.
As detailed in stories first reported by The Palm Beach Post, Chatman trafficked women through his chain of corrupt South Florida sober homes and drug treatment centers.
Reporter Lawrence Mower, who wrote the initial stories before prosecutors went after Chatman, will be featured in Monday’s episode. The show starts at 10 p.m.
“Kenny Chatman runs a string of corrupt drug rehab facilities in South Florida stealing millions by keeping insured addicts hooked on drugs. His sick plans include turning patients into prostitutes and sober homes into drug-fueled brothels,” the network said in a press release.
