10 years ago you came down in my dark basement and told me it was the best day of my life. Thank you again!

September 10th, 2023

My Dearest Joani,

It's hard to express my total gratitude to you because it is so overwhelming! My best way to thank you is to stay sober! The experience at Silver Pines Treatment Center is just what I needed! I thank God for bringing you into my life and sending me there!

Joani was invaluable in getting our loved one to treatment. The family tried and failed several times. We would have never succeeded without Joani’t help. Intervention day was not successful, but Joani volunteered to continue the process the next day - which was a success. Joani’s approach with the family and the patient was excellent. Her awareness of the treatment process, her relationships with the treatment center and her availability after the patient enters the treatment facility is also invaluable. Highly recommended!

Joani, We wanted to touch base on the 10 year anniversary of the intervention you helped us with on our son Ethan. He has stayed sober, finished college and is expecting his first child! Thank you Joani! You were there when we needed you!

Hi Joani! I know it has been a long time. But 13 years ago you helped us with our son Craig with a intervention. He went to Father Martins Ashley and I’m happy to say he is still doing well. We are in the process of planning his wedding! I just wanted to reach out and express my heart felt gratitude. Much love, MJ

Joani did an intervention for our family and so much more. She is VERY responsive to calls, questions, etc. She shares her own experiences and wealth of knowledge and people she knows in the substance abuse world. I found her very easy to relate to and talk to due to her compassion for people with substance abuse issues and her intense personal desire to help them. Joani is a genuinely caring person and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an interventionist!

Hello Miss Joani Gammill! I hope that you are staying well and safe throughout all this COVID madness! I will never forget the compassion and warmth that I felt from your and your fur baby’s presence during an extremely dark time in my life.

It’s horrific and a heavy cross to bear, but you Joani Gammill choose to help others carry those crosses. You pick up the phone and commit to helping others save their loved ones. I know this to be true. We made our call to you several years ago and you were there.
May grace always be your guiding light to joy.

Dear Joani,
Thank you so very much. You knew how to structure and handle the situation with my cousin Dylan. Your expertise was quite apparent and I will feel forever grateful.

From my heart to yours.

You drove me to Rehab 6 1/2 years ago and I am happy to say I am still sober! Even though the ride was just an hour or so, you made an indelible mark!

January 27th, 2018 mom finally told me the whole story about the events that got me into rehab.

You cared about my mom and my family and me when I couldn't. Because of you I was able to get the help I needed it when I needed it. My mom can sleep at night. I have a life today beyond my wildest dreams and it all started with a total stranger giving a f--- when no one else did. I can't fully express how I feel or want to say in words. All I can say is I have so much love and respect for you. I hope one day to be able to help someone or many the way you helped my family and I.
The world needs more people like you in it.

Joan Gammill was our interventionist 8 years ago. We thank God and her and so many that helped our family.

You are my hero, Joani! As an interventionist, an addict, a survivor and someone who is the epitome of being able to make a difference, you leave your mark on so many lives that you've literally been a part of saving and have created something good and true out of something so hard.

Thank you so much for being our keynote speaker this year. You did a wonderful job!

Good Morning Joani,

Just wanted to thank you again for all you have done for our family. I don't think of anything we would have done on our own would have been as successful.

Thank you and love

- N.D


I can not thank you enough. Although I never lost hope, it was becoming increasingly difficult to believe that Tom would ever be able to live a happy and productive life. I am now looking forward to a future and so happy for my son you are a special person and I am forever grateful. 

God Bless You,

- A Grateful Mom

You came into the darkness with our daughter with love, faith, and hope ready to guide her towards the light. You have a gift indeed.

You major skill is your authenticity Joani... you are real and even in their darkness, people see that.

Can't Thank you enough!

Hi Joani, I just finished reading your book, The Interventionist. Coincidentally, today is also my fathers 8 years of sobriety. He gave me your book shortly after leaving Hazelden. I was given the opportunity to pick any book to read for one of  my classes, and I found yours in my room. I can assure you that this was the first book that I have actually wanted to read, and have actually finished. Your stories are so deeply profound. I kept a journal as I read the book, as it was part of the school project. Thanks to your stories, I now know what I really want to do with my life. I want to help addicts, too. I'm a freshman in college so it may seem like I don't know much about addiction, but I have been surrounded by it my whole life, and have struggled with my own. Your book had such a profound impact on me that I could not resist reaching out. I hope you know how much light you shed upon the world with your truth. Addiction is a problem few want to talk about, but we all need to learn. Thank you so very much for your bravery, and keep doing what you're doing. I hope to get another book from you!
