Putting A Face To Jodi’s FIGHT
Paige was a 22 year old girl-next-door who was introduced to addiction after an opioid prescription for dental work. Jodi was the judge assigned to Paige’s treatment court.
This is where Jodi witnessed first-hand the devastating effects of interpersonal violence, substance abuse, and dependency within our families, our children and our communities. When Paige died from a fentanyl laced heroin overdose, it put a face to the victims.
Since then, Jodi has funneled the hurt and devastation experienced by all who fought for Paige into telling Paige’s story in speeches and seminars with doctors, dentists, pharmacists, addiction groups and more.
Paige’s mother founded Paige’s PROMISE, a non-profit that raises awareness of opioid addiction, educates and promotes recovery. To learn more, please click Paige’s Promise.
