Securing Cabinets (Overhead) to Wall

I am noticing where some screws are loose on overhead cabinets in our 22' International AS. I'm trying to figure what to do? Are there moly bolts like one uses on sheet rock available? Is there someway to reinforce without having to remove the whole cabinet? The one cabinet that I am most worried about has the exhaust hood attached making removal more complicated.

I just read in the forums about RivNuts, so that is certainly an option.

Some of my cabinets have been removed, at least twice, while undergoing repairs at Jackson Center. So my concern is that they "disturbed" the integrity of the screw attachments and made them less secure. I fear the repair facility can never put the furniture back in a secure as original.
