'One bad pill': Parents of Ottawa teen killed by opioid overdose speak out

Teslin Russell’s heartbroken parents have been left with two hard-to-reconcile images of their 18-year-old daughter. One, the high-achieving student who taught children to skate every Saturday. The other, the young woman found lifeless on the family’s bathroom floor after an opioid overdose.

Looking back now, Rilee and Bob Russell say nothing about Teslin had changed leading up to her death: Her personality, interests and bank account yielded no clues.

“That’s the hard part for us,” Rilee said Friday. “There was no indication. We’re not having the luxury of having the knowledge that she had a problem to even try and fix. … It’s very difficult for us to grasp that this has even happened.

“She just got that one bad pill.”

Unfortunately, bad pills are increasingly common in Canada as counterfeit opioids laced with deadly contaminants, such as fentanyl, are making their way into the hands of drug users. As police continue to investigate the drug overdose deaths of two teenagers in Ottawa, including Teslin, Bob and Rilee have gone public with their daughter’s story in the hopes of educating teens and parents on the dangers of opioids.

In her final year of high school, Teslin dreamed of becoming a nurse. Her parents said she had “worked hard her whole life,” earning top marks and had been given a spot in a pre-nursing program.

A “fierce” CanSkate competitor, Teslin won more than 60 medals in her figure skating career. She also dedicated much of her time to coaching children with disabilities as part of the CanSkate program, said Rilee, waking up early every Saturday even after going out with friends the night before.

“(The children) gravitated to Teslin,” Bob said. “It was an indication of her love for helping kids and why she wanted to become a nurse and help people. This was something that came very naturally to her.”

Adding to her list of extracurriculars, Teslin worked as an assistant at a physiotherapy clinic, in preparation for a career in nursing.

But on Dec. 31, the young woman whom Bob and Rilee described as full of love, laughter and friendship died suddenly.

“We had all gone to bed and she must have gone into the washroom and whether she did some that night, it’s not clear to us, but she basically went to sleep on the floor. … There was no trauma,” Bob said. “It was hard for us to even understand because we didn’t know about the opioids at that point, and we couldn’t understand why she just died.”

Today, Bob and Rilee say Ottawa needs to do more to deal with the opioid crisis that’s emerged in North America. They say there aren’t enough drug-abuse treatment centres here, for instance.

“As this (opioid crisis) comes out to light, they’re going to need more and more and more (treatment centres) … because if they don’t get these children in on time, their next pill might kill them,” Rilee said.

“You can’t blame (drug users). You need to educate and help them learn how to get through it, just like everything else in life,” Bob added.

Ending drug abuse starts at home, said Bob, urging parents to take the initiative and have conversations with their children.

“You need to start having very, very open conversations with your kids about the dangers of this drug,” he said. “It’s not about getting angry with them. It’s about making sure they understand and helping them.

“These kids need to hear it,” said Rilee. “They need to hear it in their circle of friends. They need to read it off of Facebook. They need to get it in their mind that a quarter of a pill can kill them and it’s Russian roulette.

“They need to be afraid for themselves and the parents need to know this.”

Teslin Russell died in December. Her parents are now speaking out about opioid overdoses.

I've been thinking the same thing. A lot like the crack epidemic initiated by the CIA in the USA of the 80's.

Whoever is inserting Fentanyl into these other drugs is killing off their potential client list so who is doing this.........

Why, it's the CIA, of course! Because it's crunchier to believe in a Great Big Sooper Seekrit Evil Conspiraceeeeee than to think drug dealers might not be the smartest guys in the room.

That's a pretty big conspiracy. When you say epidemic are you saying there was a crack-house on every block of the affected neighborhoods? If you have it right that the CIA was running the labs does that mean they were buying the cocaine from South American bandits or is the Cartel also the public head of the CIA that runs the cocaine trade and has just like the Mena Connection shows.
Is the said CIA also the ones who control the product produced in the Golden Triangle of the Far East as the CIA were the last know 'bosses' of who controlled all of the product the region could produce and distribution was through them alone.

Add up what those 3 regions produce and that is the extend of the CIA drug empire. Medical pot would be the next cash crop but all you need is ditch weed to start growing wild and the locals will be quite happy (literally) with that free product and will retreat from the opium based products.
That is a good thing for the users as the one that is the topic is the garbage that is left from the production and sale of the CIA controlled products. The many tons of product that is considered to be 'high quality' goes to the World Bankers and works it way down the chain and it gets diluted each step along the way so the users lose some of the advantages the ones higher up are getting from the said drugs.
There is more to the drug trade than it being used to keep the prisons full while the Justice Dept are on heroin while prosecution a pot smoker, for all intensive purposes.

It looks like this drug is set to be the suicide pill of the future. Caution: Requires 'No Not Resuscitate' tattoo above hearth (for those the vaccines don't get, the kids under 5 and everybody over 65)

The latest rumor in the 911 conspiracy is that all the hi-jackers were pilots in the Taliban Drug Cartel that flew the little heroin they were allowed to produce around to their clients. The flight flown by the Pentegram was a patented move for that particular pilot when flying the galloping gooses they were used to back home. Only on 911 he was a passenger to a computer controlled flight.
Do you think he knew who it was that stabbed him in the back as OBL could not take control of the electronics of a plane?

Really?? I could handle you singing a Irish Lullaby instead of you being your usual self.
If it became common knowledge that a teaspoon of heroin in 5 gallons of drinking water made you happy and wise there would be a bottle of that water in every home and business in North America. (at a lot lower price that it has cost to fight the 'war on drugs' which is really a war to keep the drugs out of the hands of the common people who would have the lights turned on that they have intentionally been kept in the dark on purpose by the ones who have have total access to the best drugs around. They are easy to spot as they also make the most on the black market and in the pharma industry.
On second though perhaps you are better off in the make believe world.

Fentanyl-laced bubble gum found near Newfoundland overdose victim: Cops
Canadian Press
Published:
February 4, 2019
Updated:
February 4, 2019 3:46 PM EST
RCMP in Newfoundland released this image showing a likeness of the packaging which contained bubble gum with narcotics. (RCMP))
BAY ROBERTS, N.L. — Police in Newfoundland are urging caution after finding bubble gum with traces of narcotics near an overdose victim.
RCMP said Monday that police officers in Bay Roberts recovered the roll of what appeared to be Hubba Bubba bubble gum tape at the site of a recent overdose.
The gum tested positive for fentanyl, a particularly potent narcotic that can be fatal in small amounts.
The victim, a man about 30 years old, survived after the responding officer administered naloxone nasal spray.
As of Monday afternoon, the source of the gum was still under investigation, though it is believed to have originated outside of Newfoundland.
Cpl. Matthew Christie said police believe the man received the gum in the mail and did not purchase it at a local store, meaning the contamination likely did not happen at a factory level.

Chief Adam Palmer made the announcement on Friday morning, and joined Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson in calling for the provincial government to shift its focus from harm-reduction to addiction treatment in fighting the region’s opioid crisis.

The chief called for both detox help and longer-term treatment for those who claim they’re ready to get off drugs.

“Imagine you’re a person addicted to drugs” and homeless with a mental illness. People who want to get help are told to wait nine days, he said.

Robertson expressed concerns about the “horrific” impact that important harm-reduction work has on those providing it. He added that governments have not properly dealt with the root causes of drug addiction nor given enough attention to treatment, and we are now seeing the results of that.

“It’s desperate times in Vancouver, and it’s hard to see any silver lining,” Robertson said. “We’ve been treading water for many years with Canada’s only harm-reduction strategy of note.”

Mental health and the housing crisis have played a role in addiction and the current overdose epidemic, Robertson added.

On Tuesday, the City of Vancouver approved a 3.9-per-cent property tax increase that included 0.5 per cent earmarked specifically to fight the city’s drug crisis.

Fentanyl is the primary enemy, although other, more toxic synthetic opioids have begun to appear on the street in recent months.

John McKearney, Vancouver’s fire chief, said the City of Vancouver has shown leadership, but the provincial government needs to become more involved in providing treatment for members of the community.

Nine die from overdoses overnight in Vancouver




Guess China is supplying a drug that will kill from inside the country - they don't need to do anything else but wait for stupid people to kill themselves. Having said that, doctors who were prescribing and now refuse to prescribe opioids to people with serious chronic pain and who have been on them for years and were doing well. Now some of these people are either committing suicide or buying drugs on the streets that kill. Unfortunately, those who haven't a clue have decided that the opioid crisis is a result of prescribed opioids which is not true and has been proven not to be true.


The issue isn't prescribed drugs; the issue is illegal drugs that have been tampered with and that kill.

Roy Greene has addressed this issue repeatedly and in depth and has interviewed, on the radio with pain specialists (who are willing to talk publicly) and those who are not for fear of losing their licenses and other individuals who are involved in prescribing these pain medications and authorities and they will all tell you the same thing. While there may be SOME prescription drugs involved, MOST of the deaths due to opioids are from illegally sourced drugs.


It is extremely disingenuous to say that MOST deaths are caused by prescribed drugs because that is factually wrong! Ask any Border agent about how much "fentanyl" has been captured trying to come into our country and they'll tell you that they only get a small portion of what is coming into the country, mostly from China.


In the meantime, the people who actually need these opioids and who have tried everything else before even getting them prescribed, are suffering because doctors are no longer prescribing them which has left them in extreme pain - pain that nothing else will relieve.


Insofar as prescribed opioids, since most (if not all) doctors won't prescribe them anymore because their Medical Associations will take their licenses, why is it that these so-called prescribed drugs are supposedly still killing? It's because they're not. It's the crap that is being imported that is doing the killing. Doctors have not been prescribing these pills for at least 2 years now and I hear that the situation is only becoming worse. How is that happening?


So, the politicians and medical associations have completely missed the mark on all these deaths and have, in fact, condemned those who need these medications to a life of constant and extreme pain simply because people on the street are dying. It's all well and good to try to do something about these deaths but putting one segment of our society over another is not the way to do it.


The whole thing has been handled badly by those who have jumped to conclusions and refuse to take the advice of the people who actually know what they're talking about.
