Lori Johnson lost her daughter, Felicia, to an opioid overdose at age 23. Felicia stole medicine from her parents, friends and neighbors until her life spiraled out of control. Three years ago, Felicia had a fatal overdose at a friend’s house shortly before she was to headed rehab, leaving behind her family and her baby girl.
Although Lori’s story of her cherished daughter is tragic, she feels passionate about raising awareness for counting, locking up and disposing of prescription medicines. It could have saved Felicia’s life. She wants people, and specifically parents, to know that it can happen to anyone, and that it is crucial that prescription medications are properly secured or removed from the home.
