        News: Jodi Harrington, Clay grad and Oregon resident, started her 5,000-mile hike across America to raise money and awareness for neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on the nerves making it difficult to perform daily activities. Harrington was inspired to embark on the challenge in honor of a fellow Clay alumnus who was battling the disease.

        “In the next 28 days, I overdosed and died four times. After each time, a D.A.R.T. officer showed up and said if I needed help to call. I told him to go screw off.” 

      Ashley Sallie continued, “They kept showing up. They kept trying to get me help I didn’t want. They wouldn’t take no for an answer. Thank God they saw something in me that was worth saving, because I wouldn’t be here today.”

      Ashley told her story in a video produced for the Lucas County Sheriff’s Drug Abuse Response Team (D.A.R.T). The video aired at a presentation on the opioid crisis given last week to the East Toledo Club and the public. Her interaction with D.A.R.T. officers began when she checked herself into a psych ward to detox. She credits her new-found clean living to the persistence of the officers who led her to a treatment plan and sobriety housing.
