DUBLIN, Ohio – Drug addiction is a complex problem with devastating consequences not just for the addict but for the people surrounding him. In his book titled “Escorted Away” (published by Xlibris), Harry Josephson shares his story as a father of a heroin addict, and how he and his family overcame the ordeal.

In this eye-opening account, Josephson looks back to the 10 years he experienced living with an addicted son. The book charts his son’s descent into addiction beginning with his first use of drugs and alcohol around the age of 14, and his eventual recovery at 24 years old. These 10 years, which Josephson candidly describes as “hell,” opened his eyes to the harrowing effects of drug abuse and what people, particularly the family and loved ones of addicts, can do about the problem.

“I have learned a lot from my journey with my son in his addiction,” Josephson says, “In this book, I share the things I experienced, the lessons I learned and the wisdom I would like to pass along to others. If it saves a life or helps a parent or child, it is worth the effort.”

Timely, informative and ultimately inspiring, “Escorted Away” is a powerful true story of addiction and testament of a father’s love.
