Vigil remembers those lost to drug overdoses

BECKLEY (WVVA) - A candlelight vigil was held Thursday night in Beckley to remember those that have lost their lives due to prescription drug overdoses.

More than 30 people were on hand to light a candle for those that have suffered or currently dealing with the addiction of a drug problem.

Several dignitaries from around Raleigh County say the drug problem needs to end.

For one mother, she experienced the drug battle from her own son who was addicted to the pills.

She started the organization Mothers Against Prescription Drugs Abuse.

She says she doesn't want a loved one to suffer the pain that she saw with her own eyes.
