faenzone.ch/components/138/android-spy-hack.php Michael Barrett and Jenna Mulligan, emergency paramedics in Berkeley County, West Virginia, recently got a call that sent them to the youth softball field in a tiny town called Hedgesville. Two of the parents were lying on the ground, unconscious, several yards apart. Wake up! Adults ushered the younger kids away. From the other side of the backstop, the older kids asked Barrett if the parents had overdosed.
At this stage of the American opioid epidemic, many addicts are collapsing in public—in gas stations, in restaurant bathrooms, in the aisles of big-box stores. Brian Costello, a former Army medic who is the director of the Berkeley County Emergency Medical Services, believes that more overdoses are occurring in this way because users figure that somebody will find them before they die. A month after the incident, the couple from the softball field, Angel Dawn Holt, who is thirty-five, and her boyfriend, Christopher Schildt, who is thirty-three, were arraigned on felony charges of child neglect.
Like the vast majority of residents there, nearly all the addicts are white, were born in the area, and have modest incomes. Other residents regard addicts as community embarrassments. Many people in the Panhandle have embraced the idea of addiction as a disease, but a vocal cohort dismisses this as a fantasy disseminated by urban liberals.
These tensions were aired in online comments that amassed beneath the Journal article. Shouldnt be able to have there kids back! Seems the heroin was more important to them, than watchn there kids have fun play ball, and have there parents proud of them!! At the tax payers expense. The only way to understand it is to have lived it. The children need to be in a safe home and the adults need help. They are sick, i know from the outside it looks like a choice but its not.
Shaming and judging will not help anyone. One day, Angel Holt started posting comments. A few weeks later, I spoke to Holt on the phone. But the heroin had a strange purple tint—it must have been cut with something nasty. She started feeling weird, and passed out. On January 18th, county officials started using a new app to record overdoses.
According to this data, during the next two and a half months emergency medical personnel responded to a hundred and forty-five overdoses, eighteen of which were fatal. This underestimates the scale of the epidemic, because many overdoses do not prompt calls. Narcan, which costs fifty dollars a dose, consumed two-thirds of that allotment. The medication was administered two hundred and twenty-three times in , and four hundred and three times in He started his day as he often does, with bacon and eggs at the Olde Country Diner, in Martinsburg.
Barrett, who is thirty-three, with a russet-colored beard and mustache, works two twenty-four-hour shifts a week, starting at 7 a. The diner shares a strip mall with the E. Several family members were present at the home, and while Barrett and his colleagues worked on her they cried and blamed one another, and themselves, for not watching her more closely. The woman was given Narcan, but she was too far gone; she died after arriving at the hospital. We stopped by a local fire station, where the men and women on duty talked about all the O. Sometimes they knew the person from high school, or were related to the person.
Barrett sometimes had to return several times in one day to the same house—once, a father, a mother, and a teen-age daughter overdosed on heroin in succession. Such stories seemed like twisted variations on the small-town generational solidarity he admired; as Barrett put it, even if one family member wanted to get clean, it would be next to impossible unless the others did, too. He was used to O. He once arrived at a home to find a seven-year-old and a five-year-old following the instructions of a operator and performing C.
They survived. By the time we got there, the man, who appeared to be in his early thirties, had been helped out of his vehicle and into an ambulance. That was a good thing—these days, the narcotic is often cut with synthetic painkillers such as fentanyl, which is fifty times as powerful as heroin. The man had floppy brown hair and a handsome face; he was wearing jeans, work boots, and a black windbreaker.
I was trying to take it all. Then he mumbled something about having a headache. A woman introduced herself to me as Ethel. She had been driving behind the man when he lost consciousness. The sky was a dazzling blue, with fluffy white clouds scudding overhead.
The man took a sobriety test, wobbling across the neat lawn of a Methodist church. We were driving away from Hedgesville when the third overdose call of the day came, for a twenty-nine-year-old male. Inside a nicely kept house in a modern subdivision, the man was lying unconscious on the bathroom floor, taking intermittent gasps. Opioid overdoses usually kill people by inhibiting respiration: breathing slows and starts to sound labored, then stops altogether.
Barrett began preparing a Narcan dose. Generally, the goal was to get people breathing well again, not necessarily to wake them completely. A full dose of Narcan is two milligrams, and in Berkeley County the medics administer 0. Barrett crouched next to the man and started an I. A minute later, the man sat up, looking bewildered and resentful. He threw up. As we drove away, Barrett predicted that the man would check himself out of the hospital as soon as he could; most O.
Even a brush with death was rarely a turning point for an addict. Ninety-nine per cent of the time, no. The man overdosed three times; his girlfriend, once. It was getting dark, and Barrett stopped at a convenience store for a snack—chocolate milk and a beef stick. That evening, he dealt with one more O. A young woman had passed out in her car in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven, with her little girl squirming in a car seat.
An older woman who happened on the scene had taken the girl, a four-year-old, into the store and bought her some hot chocolate and Skittles. After the young woman received Narcan, Barrett told her that she could have killed her daughter, and she started sobbing hysterically. Meanwhile, several guys in the parking lot were becoming agitated. They had given the woman C.
The men were black and everybody else—the overdosing woman, the older woman, the cops, the ambulance crew—was white. The men were told to remain at the scene while the cops did background checks. We really appreciate that. The cops let the men go, the young woman went to the E. Heroin is an alluringly cheap alternative to prescription pain medication. In , Purdue Pharma introduced OxyContin, marketing it as a safer form of opiate—the class of painkillers derived from the poppy plant. Opiates such as morphine block pain but also produce a dreamy euphoria, and over time they cause physical cravings.
OxyContin was sold in time-release capsules that levelled out the high and, supposedly, diminished the risk of addiction, but people soon discovered that the capsules could be crushed into powder and then injected or snorted. Between and , the number of overdose deaths in the United States jumped by a hundred and thirty-seven per cent. Some states became inundated with opiates. According to the Charleston Gazette-Mail , between and drug wholesalers shipped to West Virginia seven hundred and eighty million pills of hydrocodone the generic name for Vicodin and oxycodone the generic name for OxyContin.
That was enough to give each resident four hundred and thirty-three pills. The state has a disproportionate number of people who have jobs that cause physical pain, such as coal mining. It also has high levels of poverty and joblessness, which cause psychic pain. Mental-health services, meanwhile, are scant.
Chess Yellott, a retired family practitioner in Martinsburg, told me that many West Virginians self-medicate to mute depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress from sexual assault or childhood abuse. In , Purdue introduced a reformulated capsule that is harder to crush or dissolve. The Centers for Disease Control subsequently issued new guidelines stipulating that doctors should not routinely treat chronic pain with opioids, and instead should try approaches such as exercise and behavioral therapy. The number of prescriptions for opioids began to drop.
But when prescription opioids became scarcer their street price went up. Drug cartels sensed an opportunity, and began flooding rural America with heroin. Daniel Ciccarone, a professor at the U. They worked very hard to move high-quality heroin into places like rural Vermont. In West Virginia, many addicts told me, an oxycodone pill now sells for about eighty dollars; a dose of heroin can be bought for about ten. However, this drop coincided with an unprecedented rise in heroin overdoses.
Louis, looked at some three thousand heroin addicts in substance-abuse programs. Half of those who began using heroin before were white; nearly ninety per cent of those who began using in the past decade were white. This demographic shift may be connected to prescribing patterns. A study by a University of Pennsylvania researcher found that black patients were thirty-four per cent less likely than white patients to be prescribed opioids for such chronic conditions as back pain and migraines, and fourteen per cent less likely to receive such prescriptions after surgery or traumatic injury.
But a larger factor, it seems, was the despair of white people in struggling small towns. On heroin, you curl up in a corner and blank out the world. Much more so than coke or meth, where you want to run around and do things—you get aggressive, razzed and jazzed. Nearly everyone I met in Martinsburg has ties to someone—a child, a sibling, a girlfriend, an in-law, an old high-school coach—who has struggled with opioids.
Yet there is a chronic shortage of beds in the state for addicts who want help. Weeks, months. West Virginia has an overdose death rate of New Hampshire has the second-highest rate: Martinsburg, which has a population of seventeen thousand, is a hilly town filled with brick and clapboard row houses. It was founded in , by Adam Stephen, a Revolutionary War general. The town became a depot for the B. Railroad and grew into an industrial center dominated by woollen mills. Interwoven, established in the eighteen-nineties, was the first electric-powered textile plant in the U.
The Interwoven factory whistle could be heard all over town, summoning workers every morning at a quarter to seven. Nevertheless, many residents I met brought up this history, as part of a larger story of lost purpose that has made the town vulnerable to the opioid onslaught. The void has been filled, only partially, by people from neighboring states. The Eastern Panhandle is one of the wealthier parts of a poor state. The most destitute counties depend on coal mining. Berkeley County is close enough to D. Nevertheless, Martinsburg feels isolated.
Several people I met there expressed surprise, or sympathy, when I told them that I live in D. The Interwoven mill, derelict and grand, dominates the center of Martinsburg. A local police officer has proposed turning most of the mill into a rehab facility. Michael Chalmers is the publisher of an Eastern Panhandle newspaper, the Observer. It is based in Shepherdstown, a picturesque college town near the Maryland border which has not succumbed to heroin. Chalmers, who is forty-two, grew up in Martinsburg, and in he lost his younger brother, Jason, to an overdose.
I asked him why he thought that Martinsburg was struggling so much with drugs. The Interwoven mill, derelict and grand, still dominates the center of Martinsburg. One corner of it has been turned into a restaurant, but the rest sits empty. A police officer named Andrew Garcia has a plan, called Martinsburg Renew, which would turn most of the mill into a rehab facility. Maybe it will be drug rehab. In the past several months, I have returned to Martinsburg many times, and spoken with many addicts there. Lori Swadley is a portrait and wedding photographer in Martinsburg. When I looked at her Web site, she seemed to be in demand all over the area, and her photographs were lovely: her brides glowed in afternoon light, her high-school seniors looked polished and confident.
But what drew me to her was a side project she had been pursuing, called 52 Addicts—a series of portraits that called attention to the drug epidemic in and around Martinsburg. It was clear that Swadley had a full life: her husband, Jon, worked with her in the photography business, and they had three small children, Juniper, Bastian, and Bodhi. Swadley is thirty-nine, tall and slender, and she looked elegant in jeans, a charcoal-colored turtleneck, and high boots. She and her husband had moved to Martinsburg in , she told me, looking for an affordable place to raise children close to where she had grown up, in the Shenandoah Valley.
Soon after they arrived, they settled into a subdivision outside town, and Swadley started reading the Martinsburg Journal online. Because at that time it seemed like everybody else wanted to hide it. And, to me, that seemed like the worst thing you could do. I said that it seemed like an extraordinarily high number, especially for someone who was not an addict. She agreed, but there it was.
All thirteen were young men—Swadley had met most of them when she was in her early twenties, and she had been a tomboy back then. The first time she heard that a friend had died, she had been photographing a wedding for some mutual friends. They were sitting around a bonfire at the end of the day. When Swadley spoke of a crazy horror film that she and a guy named Jeremy had made in high school, somebody mentioned that he had recently died, from a heroin overdose.
She threw up, and wrecked her car on the way home. At the time, Swadley was hanging out with her old crowd in bars and restaurants every weekend. One by one, the group dwindled.
As the overdoses piled up, she was appalled to find that sometimes she had trouble keeping track of which friends were dead. The funerals had a peculiar aspect. In January, , she started photographing addicts in recovery. For the first few portraits, Swadley reached out to her subjects, but soon people started coming to her. She took their pictures, asked them about their lives, and told their stories in a paragraph or so. There are now two dozen images in the series.
In one of the portraits, an E. A woman named Tiffany posed holding a snapshot of her younger sister, Tabby. Both women had started off on pills—Tabby had developed a problem after a gallbladder operation left her with a thirty-day supply of meds—and then became heroin addicts. Tiffany had received treatment, but Tabby had fatally overdosed while she was waiting for a rehab bed. Swadley took the portrait in a park where Tiffany had once begged Tabby to stop using.
