Starbucks Customers Found A 16-Year-Old Girl Dead Inside A Bathroom - Notice This Next To Her

Two Canadian mothers say the lack of drug addiction facilities for teens in British Columbia is in part to blame for their children’s deaths. According to one mother interviewed by CBC News there is a four to six-month waiting list to get into a facility.

“Our kids will die in that time period,” she said tearfully.

Veronica Staddon says she couldn’t afford the $50,000 cost of putting her 16-year-old daughter in a drug treatment facility. Her daughter Gwynevere was using the same drug that killed her boyfriend’s brother five months ago, street drugs that were laced with homemade fentanyl. Gwynevere told her mom she had been clean for three weeks.

"I've quit, so I'm OK now, Mum," Veronica said her daughter told her. "It was calling out her name, and so she thought, 'One more time.' The one more time was the very last time."

And it was. She died of a suspected overdose in a Starbucks bathroom and was found by an employee. She was unresponsive and couldn’t be revived.

"My best friend, my daughter, my sweetheart baby ... I will never stop missing you ... my heart won't stop breaking" her mother wrote on Facebook.

The two mothers hope their stories will help British Columbia create more drug treatment centers for teens that are affordable.

"I didn't want to have a missed opportunity to honour her memory," Veronica said.
