When the police and paramedics came, they turned her sister onto the floor and sprayed naloxone up her nose—once, then a second dose. The anti-opiate did its work in minutes: Her sister woke up. Three days later, she opened the door to the police again. Derek Back, a police officer in plainclothes, and Tiffany Duggan, an addiction recovery coach, hadn’t come with an arrest warrant but a potential lifeline: a bed in a drug treatment facility.Story Continued Below “I’m praying she comes back,” the 56-year-old woman said of her sister, whom she hadn’t seen since that night. “It’s the only way she’s going to get help.” The nation’s opioid epidemic, which has raged across New England, killing more than 15,000 since 2014, has come again and again to this small apartment in the region’s oldest town.
