Gammill, Joani. The Interventionist. Hazelden. May 2011. 336p. ISBN 9781592858941. pap. $14.95. MEMOIR

Gammill was a nurse in a drug-and-alcohol rehab facility, not to mention an addict. In a dark moment, she reached out on live television to Dr. Phil and promised to get help (and did). Now an independent interventionist and recovering addict/alcoholic, she partners with Dr. Phil to help addicts of all kinds. This story-alternating between tales of interventions she has facilitated and her corresponding personal struggle through addiction, recovery, and relapse-is powerfully rendered in active and emotionally connected language.
What I'm Telling My Friends This is Nurse Jackie staging interventions! She is human and gritty, someone you'd want in your corner if you were in need. Full of failures, bumps, and triumphs-she doesn't paint herself as fully savior or victim.--Julie Kane "Library Journal "
