About the Book

William Henry Wall Jr. shares his efforts to clear his father’s name after fifty years of silent grief in From Healing to Hell.

He recounts the needless tragedy of W. Henry Wall, M.D., a successful Southwest Georgia physician who served in the state Senate in the 1940s and 1950s.

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 sixteen, devastated.

Dr. Wall discovered he had been incarcerated in an institution approved by the CIA for its notorious MKULTRA drug experiments. Refusing to become a guinea pig, he was nevertheless given the experimental drugs, which led to terrifying hallucinations and violent flashbacks for the rest of his life.

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.
