“Judge Jodi puts the HERO in HEROIN…”is one grieving mother’s description of Judge Jodi Debbrecht Switalski’s efforts to stem the drug epidemic that is dismantling America.“…she is a WARRIOR.”

Judge Jodi has witnessed first-hand the devastating effects surrounding interpersonal violence and substance abuse and dependency within our families, our children, and our communities.
