Mardello second Jefferson County Drug Court graduate
Thursday, April 04, 2013 11:00 AM
The Jefferson County Drug Court held its second graduation Tuesday.
Jasmine Mardello, 27, was the first participant to be accepted into the Drug Court two years ago and has now successfully completed all program requirements.
Mardello, who is a mother of three young sons, said she wanted to go through drug court because she was fearful she would die through overuse.
Mardello said the she had lost her home, her car and her relationship with her children through her drug use. She even suffered an overdose.
Mardello credits the drug court with changing her thinking and attitudes to achieve clean and sober living. She had an addiction to heroin and has been clean for 15 months. She has obtained steady employment and was promoted to a management position. She attends church regularly and was recently baptized.
Jefferson Superior Court Judge Alison Frazier, who supervises the drug court, said that it has been a joy to watch Mardello grow and develop and start to live her life with hope for the future.
That is a great accomplishment Mardello!!! I know your parents and children are proud of you .The drug court was a great opportunity for you.However, attending church regularly is an awesome choice and will continue to be helpful in keeping your life on track. Hopefully your story will make a positive impact with the court system,and they will allow other drug user/abusers the chance to participate in some type of program, verses many years in prison. You are a very good example,of how people can change.And make a complete turn around in their life if given that chance. Sincerely Happy for you and your children.
