The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the certified social work registration of Amy Levin, C.S.W., based on her two felony convictions in the 6th Judicial Circuit Court, Oakland County, Michigan.

Levin failed to report her convictions to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code. On December 5, 2003, Levin pled guilty to one felony count of Controlled Substance – Possession (Narcotic or Cocaine) Less Than 25 Grams and one misdemeanor count of Retail Fraud – Third Degree.

The conviction stemmed from Levin’s possession of heroin. On August 4, 2004, Levin pled guilty to one felony count of Controlled Substance – Possession (Narcotic or Cocaine) Less Than 25 Grams. Levin’s conviction stemmed from her possession of crack cocaine.

On October 8, 2004, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Levin’s registration pursuant to the Public Health Code, which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional’s license upon the conviction of a felony. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Levin’s certified social work registration.
