Recovery Centers of America (RCA), a community-based addiction treatment provider delivering evidence-based care, has hired Joani Gammill, a nationally acclaimed drug and alcohol intervention facilitator who has appeared on Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil, to provide free intervention services for families and individuals suffering from substance use disorder (SUD).
Joani, who found recovery for herself through a successful intervention after nearly three decades of battling opiate addiction, has dedicated her life to taking the stigma out of the disease of addiction and bringing people the same life-saving care that she received.
For over a decade, Joani has led a highly successful practice for intervention services. She believes that patients must have access to the full continuum of care, which starts with necessary interventions through aftercare-treatment support.
“I am thrilled to join a national leader such as Recovery Centers of America, that is making such a tremendous impact on the lives of patients,” says Gammill. “My patients have been treated at Recovery Centers of America facilities and I was incredibly impressed by the high level of care, masters-level staff and, most importantly, the improvement my patients showed. RCA is a highly ethical company with a community who is truly dedicated to leading people into a life of recovery and I’m excited to bring my experience to this team.”
Joani began her career facilitating interventions in Los Angeles, California with Intervention911 led by Ken Seeley. Since then, she has published two books. “The Interventionist” (2011) shares personal stories, both her own and those of patients, that reveal hope in recovery. “Painkillers, Heroin, and the Road to Sanity” (2014) examines addiction, long-term recovery, treatment approaches and much more.
“We are very excited to have Joani join the Recovery Centers of America team,” says RCA’s Mission Center Director Sean Hanrahan. “Her work as an interventionist is outstanding and her reputation is beyond reproach. She is the type of caliber of professional RCA is adding daily to build a premier team of addiction specialists to help our patients get into care and begin recovery. Joani’s personal experience coupled with her devotion to helping patients into successful recovery is truly inspiring.”
Joani is a former RN of 20 years, five of which she worked at an addiction treatment center in Maryland. She is currently working on her Certification of Addiction Counseling Associates Degree (CAC/AD) and is a member of the Association of Intervention Specialists (AIS) and the National Association of Addiction Professionals (NAADAC).
