YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - An Ohio man is sharing a very personal experience on social media that he hopes will help spread more awareness about drug addiction.

Brenden Bickerstaff-Clark told his 8-year-old son on Monday that his mother died of a heroin overdose.
"This was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. My son has no mother because of heroin," Bickerstaff-Clark wrote.

Bickerstaff-Clark, who is a recovering drug addict, is seen in the Facebook video, sitting outside on a table across from his son and a woman.

"Your mommy died last night," Bickerstaff-Clark said.

"What do you mean? My mom," the boy said.

Bickerstaff-Clark's son started crying as the woman next to embraced him. Bickerstaff-Clark walked over the table to hold his son as he continued to cry.

"Please get help so our children don't have to suffer," Bickerstaff-Clark wrote. He said he posted the video so that "addicts with children can see the seriousness of our epidemic."
