A son's courageous effort to clear his father's name, From Healing to Hell tells the needless tragedy of W. Henry Wall, M.D., a successful southwest Georgia physician and state senator of the mid-1900s. After Dr. Wall became unwittingly addicted to a prescription drug, he found himself trapped in a nightmarish chain of events. Arrested on federal drug charges, he was convicted and sentenced to the only U.S. prison for addicts. His community was shocked and his entire family including the author, then 17, was devastated. In prison, Dr. Wall was subjected against his will to the CIA's notorious MKULTRA drug experiments. The Wall family's half-century nightmare should give every American fair warning: while government is essential to protect us, its powers must never be left unchecked.
