An Indiana woman who three years ago was revived with Narcan after suffering an overdose with her baby in the car is celebrating a sobriety milestone — with the help of her son.
Erika Hurt commemorated three years of sobriety with endearing photos of her and her son Parker, each holding up powerful signs.
“Narcan saved my life,” reads the sign held up by Hurt.
Parker, meanwhile, lifts a sign that reads, “And now I get to have my mommy.”
Hurt garnered national attention in October 2016 when Hope police released a photo showing her in the driver’s seat of a parked car after overdosing on heroin.
Her son in the backseat was 10 months old at the time. The picture quickly went viral.
Hurt, who was 25 at the time, recently told “Good Morning America” that she saw that photo of herself during the second day of her stay in rehab.
This past Oct. 22 marked three years of sobriety for Hurt, who also shared a powerful message on Facebook along with the professionally snapped new photos with her son.
“What is really important today, is the fact that Narcan saved my life!” Hurt wrote. “Narcan kept me alive until I wanted to live! While I can admit that my son was unfortunately NOT enough to keep me sober then, he is my motivation today.”
She continued: “Had Narcan not been available to me; or had someone who felt that I DIDNT DESERVE Narcan been there that day, I would have NEVER had the chance to get sober and my son would be growing up without ever knowing his mom.”
