CIPA affiliate member and author Dawn Obrecht, MD announces the April 17th release of From the Edge of the Cliff: Understanding the Two Phases of Recovery and Becoming the Person You’re Meant to Be.

Dr. Obrecht’s new book is a 262‐page paperback that creatively provides those recovering from drug and/or alcohol abuse with practical lessons on how to understand and successfully navigate the two‐phases of recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction.

However, it has also been widely described by critics as a remarkably touching, real‐life story which recaps many of the lessons learned by DocDawn herself as she transitioned into her own successful recovery, more than 28 years ago.

From the Edge of the Cliff was scheduled for release simultaneously in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia on April 17, 2012. You can purchase this book at the RICHER Press online bookstore at
