  • Jeffrey W. Young Jr., AKA ‘The Rock Doc’, has been jailed for 20 years  
  • He was caught running an elaborate opioid ring out of his ‘party clinic’ in Jackson
  • Young, 49, had been having sex with patients on the side in exchange for drugs 

A Tennessee nurse practitioner who launched an unsuccessful reality TV career as the ‘Rock Doc’ has been jailed for 20 years for running an elaborate opioid ring. 

Jeffrey W. Young Jr, 49, was caught writing hundreds of thousands of prescriptions for drugs including fentanyl for his patients – many of whom he was said to also be having sex with on the side. 

The self-described ‘Rock Doc’ portrayed himself as a fun-loving practitioner with a ‘party’ style clinic in Jackson – while secretly prescribing ‘medically unnecessary’ opioids to patients in return for sexual favors, money, and notoriety. 

In a clip promoting his failed TV venture, he was recorded kissing women in clubs, clinking drinks, and riding a motorcycle to show off his post-work, ‘adventurous’ self. 

The self-produced videos also included behind-the-scenes clips of his glamorous assistants, receptionists, and medical patients talking about how great ‘Rock Doc’ is.

Despite the nickname he gave himself, Young Jr. is not a doctor.

According to an investigation by The Tennessean, evidence of Young’s crimes and lewd behavior with patients – including rape accusations – date back to 2015, but he was allowed to continue for years until he was first indicted in 2019. 

That investigation uncovered a slew of evidence that Young was having sex with his patients, and included a video where Young allegedly pretended to determine a woman’s age and attractiveness by smelling her underwear. 

When he was first indicted in 2019, it was found he young had illegally prescribed a significant number of opioids including 500,000 hydrocodone pills and 300,000 oxycodone pills

The outlet claimed that officials failed to take action when presented with such allegations years ago, with the Department of Health reportedly receiving 13 complaints against Young since 2015. 

These included accusations of his illegal opioid prescribing, as well as drug use, patient privacy violations and making threats. 

In 2016, the department received a complaint that alleged Young had been selling testosterone injections to a youth football team, but no investigation was ever launched. 

The outlet claimed that when Young was questioned about the death of one of his patients, the lead investigator grew so ‘fearful’ of Young that she began carrying a gun at work. 

He was also hit with a rape allegation, and during that investigation the Health Department heard from two of his employees that Young routinely had sex with his patients. 

When he was originally indicted in 2019, the Department of Justice said he had illegally prescribed 500,000 hydrocodone pills, 300,000 oxycodone pills, 1,500 fentanyl patches, and more than 600,000 benzodiazepine pills along with other controlled substances.

Despite facing lewd allegations since 2015, Young continued to operate for years, and tried to launch own reality TV show ‘The Rock Doc’ about his party clinic. 

The show, which Young self-produced, saw the tattoo-laden nurse offer a seemingly wide array of treatments and prescriptions, all while surrounded by young female assistants. 

Amid questions over how he was able to carry on operating for years, The Tennessean claimed he had a cozy relationship with the local police that also included officers being given prescriptions in exchange for favors.  

After his 20-year federal prison sentence was handed down this week, the Department of Justice slammed him for ‘abusing the power of the prescription pad.’ 

Nicole M. Argentieri, head of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, said: ‘The self-proclaimed ‘Rock Doc’ abused the power of the prescription pad to supply his small community with hundreds of thousands of doses of highly addictive prescription opioids to obtain money, notoriety, and sexual favors.

‘The defendant’s conduct endangered his patients and the community as a whole. 

‘Today’s sentence reflects the seriousness of this criminal conduct and the department’s commitment to protecting communities from the scourge of illegally prescribed drugs.’

At his trial, it was revealed that he had been illegally prescribing drugs for hundreds of people, including a pregnant woman and women he had been having his secret romantic trysts with. 

He was said to have utilized the party atmosphere at his clinic to continue his behavior, and ‘to boost his popularity’ on social media and his reality TV show. 

Following his sentencing, DEA Special Agent in Charge Erek Davodowich said: ‘Mr. Young operated a medical practice with a wanton disregard for the health and well-being of his patients who entrusted him with their medical care. 

‘Any healthcare provider who conducts business in such a manner that causes harm to his patients and community should expect to meet the full weight of the justice system.’

The DOJ said he was snared as part of the Health Care Fraud Strike Force Program, which has charged over 5,400 people for billing a total of $27 billion from federal and private health care programs since 2007.
