"Painkillers, Heroin, And The Road To Sanity"

It has been three years since we talked toJoaniGammill of Annapolis.  She’s a trained nurse and recovering pill addict who works as an interventionist – a professional who confronts addicts who are resistant to treatment and persuades them to enter treatment. Her first book, "The Interventionist," describes how she works.  Her new book takes us deeper into her own recovery.  It’s called "Painkillers, Heroin, and the Road to Sanity."  Joani Gammill joins Sheilah in the studio.

Gammill will be speaking December 11th at 6 p.m.  at the Kolmac Clinic, an outpatient alcohol and drug-abuse treatment center. It’s part of their program, “12 Days: Supporting Recovery During the Holidays”.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
