PORTLAND, ME – AUGUST 12: Portland paramedics Steven Bishop, left, and Nathaniel Sparling monitor a 29 year-old woman after she was found unconscious from a heroin overdose on Congress Street near the intersection of India Street. The woman thanked the paramedics, one who recognized her from an overdose about a month ago. “At least I still have my shoes this time” said the woman who told the paramedics that she normally uses 1/2 gram of heroin twice a day, but had cut her dose to 1/4 gram that night because she had heard that it was stronger than usual.
