Mid afternoon on Sunday, October 14, 2018, Emily Moore saw a man fall from his chair onto the floor at Destiny USA. Emily quickly realized the man was overdosing and took immediate action. Just a few months prior she received Narcan training from ACR Health in Syracuse.
Moore never expected to use her Narcan training. Moore said she doesn't even know this man's name, but wants him to know he's not alone in his struggle. "He didn't die that day, and that's for a reason," Moore said.
It's a day she'll never forget — and one she hopes will push people will get trained to use Narcan and realize that there is more to a person than their addiction.
