Aurora Addictions Specialist Weighs in on Winnipeg’s Fentanyl Crisis
“In his 15-year career working with addictions, Ian Rabb says he has never seen anything that compares to the fentanyl crisis in Winnipeg.
“It’s been quite alarming and disturbing to me on a personal and professional level. I’ve personally been affected by seven deaths in the last nine weeks directly related to fentanyl use,” Rabb told CBC News.
Rabb, who is the founder of Two Ten Recovery, Destiny House and current business director of Aurora Recovery Centre, said the victims have been former clients as well as youth whose parents were trying to get them into treatment.
While he knows of seven people who have died, Rabb cautioned there are likely a lot more.”
