Layla Freeman lost her daughter Ashley at just 23 years old to an opioid overdose on Christmas Eve five years ago. Layla has turned her pain into fuel to help other moms make sure they do not go through that same pain.
She set down with News on 6's Brian Dorman to discuss her daughter Ashley and the emotional journey, starting Light of Hope, and what this historic ruling means to the opioid crisis.
Light of Hope has partnered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to bring a drug education & prevention program to students. We announced to the community, our new partnership and funding initiative Change for Change. With the highest level of education resources from the DEA we are making changes to the way our kids think and understand drugs and addiction. This program will also open dialogue with parents and kids to talk about drugs and addiction.
