From the Edge of the Cliff: Understanding the Two Phases of Recovery and Becoming the Person You're Meant To Be is a well-written book that provides addicts with practical lessons on how to understand and successfully navigate the two-phases of recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction. However, it is also a remarkably touching, real-life story of someone who has used these same lessons to maintain 28 years of successful recovery.

The book contains an entire section on the hazards of drugs prescribed by physicians not well versed in addiction recovery. Read about the dangers of using "legal drugs" that may sabotage your recovery and trigger relapse.

It is rare to find in one book the combination of an instructive, addiction recovery resource and an unfettered look into the world of the 'addict next door.'

"Once an addict, always in active addiction? The old lie is dead! This book provides clear instruction on how to recover and stay recovered from the disease of addiction. As an attorney who sees the legal ramifications of the disease of addiction, I recommend this book! Read and reread its' pages."

"Dr. Dawn reveals how addicts can manipulate doctors so they become legal "pushers" and instruct physicians to educate themselves about addiction. This is a must read for any medical professional who has the ability to write a prescription. Thank you for your incredible and accurate insight, and also a great read!"
