A psychologist who works with substance abusers has been arrested after his younger girlfriend -- a former patient -- overdosed on OxyContin that authorities said he supplied.
Adam Feder, 40, of North Miami-Dade, is charged with manslaughter and trafficking in controlled substances.
Miami-Dade police say he supplied OxyContin to his girlfriend, Rachel Finzi, 20, of Lauderhill, who died in his North Miami-Dade apartment in 2006.
According to his online bio, Feder teaches at Florida International University and Florida Atlantic University as an adjunct professor. Neither school's website lists him in their faculty directory.
He works for the North Star Centre in Boca Raton, according to the clinic's website.
''Dr. Feder has published articles and made numerous presentations on a variety of topics related to the treatment of children, adolescents and substance abusers,'' according to his bio.
