Synopsis: Recovery from prescription painkiller or heroin addiction can feel impossible, especially considering that those who have gone through typical 28-day treatment programs often experience relapses and sometimes, fatal overdoses. But there is hope.
In Painkillers, Heroin, and the Road to Sanity, recovering addict and prominent interventionist Joanie Gammill offers a radically effective approach for those struggling with opiate addiction, sharing sometimes-controversial tips that have worked for others who, are in long-term recovery. Gammill examines the scientific explanations for the low numbers of people sustaining recovery from opiate addiction, and taps the pioneering work of treatment professionals whose new approaches are changing the way we think about opiate addiction to offer practical steps for creating a realistic and effective recovery plan.
Gammill affirms that recovery from opiate addiction is a process, not an event. This honest and trustworthy guide reveals that, although getting well from this disease may not happen in one detox or treatment experience, a healthy, drug-free life is possible.

About the Author: Joani Gammill, RN has appeared regularly on "Dr. Phil" where she has led interventions that have inspired millions of viewers. Before her career as an interventionist, she worked as a registered nurse in medical facilities including a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre.
