Dear Saint Leonard’s Community,
Saint Leonard’s Ministries Board member Matthew McFarland regularly visits a West Side gas station where he tries to help people seek treatment for substance use. Yesterday, he was there with CBS-2 to talk about the end of cash bail in Illinois when a man overdosed nearby.
Matthew immediately administered Narcan and revived the man.
This is something our communities deal with every day, and with Narcan available over the counter, everyone should have this life-saving drug. Our Saint Leonard’s Ministries’ staff is also educated and prepared to use Narcan, and we encourage you to learn how use it.
Thank you Matthew, and thank you for being a life-saving member of the Saint Leonard’s Community!
