Ohio Lt Gov. Mary Taylor

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Ohio Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor is going public with her sons' stories of opioid addiction, hoping it helps others around the state struggling with a similar problem.

In an exclusive interview with the Dayton Daily News, Taylor says sons Joe, 26 and Michael, 23, have undergone treatment for drug addiction and one of them is still undergoing treatment.

While Taylor didn't discuss in detail the problems her sons experienced, she told the paper the past five years have included drug rehabilitation programs that didn't work, two overdoses at home and several calls for ambulances.

Taylor is a Republican who's running for Ohio governor in 2018.
