SAPULPA, Okla. — A Sapulpa woman hopes that sharing her anguish over the death of her son will help save someone's life.
Lisa Brashear lost her 25-year-old son, Johnathan Noble, in February to a heroin overdose. She said her life hasn't been the same since.
She put up a Christmas tree with her son's story at 12 & 12, a local substance abuse treatment center. Brashear said she hopes it will help others choose to make better choices with their lives.
Earlier this month, FOX23 reported that Tulsa police has seized twice as much heroin in 2017 than in 2016. Officials said heroin use continues to skyrocket.
Investigators said that, in many cases, addiction begins when people become addicted to painkillers and escalate to using other drugs.
