SCOTTSDALE, AZ — A Valley addiction psychiatrist is facing charges after being accused of using cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol with a patient.

According to court records, a detective met with the patient, who claimed to have a video of 37-year-old Rajeev Singh Billing, an addiction psychiatrist, using cocaine.

Officials say the video footage also showed Billing smoking what appeared to be marijuana from a glass bong, as well as white residue on a mirror next to a rolled-up bill.

The individual who contacted authorities reportedly said he had been treated by Billing at the Second Chance Treatment Center since June 2019, and they became friends. Billing has since been fired by Second Chance.

In December, Billing reportedly offered the man alcohol and marijuana. However, the individual was concerned about testing positive at an upcoming drug test.

Billing then allegedly offered the man a "bridge," which would allow him to delay the drug test long enough for the drugs to leave his system.

The patient agreed, and the pair smoked marijuana and ingested cocaine. Billing also reportedly gave the man some Oxycodone.

On January 17, a search warrant was executed at Billing's home near Scottsdale and Camelback roads, where investigators reportedly found a mirror with cocaine on it, marijuana, bottles of Oxycodone, and other drugs.

According to court records, upon his arrest, Billing admitted to obtaining cocaine and ingesting drugs with the patient.

Billing is facing potential endangerment, fraud and various drug charges.
