Harris: I'm alright and Adam is where he needs to be for now

A public prayer service is scheduled in Columbia for families dealing with addiction.
By Linda Waggener

Mike Harris called to say that he is home from the hospital, he is alright and that his son is where he needs to be for now. He said he and his wife Laura have nothing but love and forgiveness for Adam who is "one of the most compassionate people we know" in the absence of drug addiction.

The family had been dealing with the addiction privately until Saturday when Adam's actions took a violent turn and resulted in injuries to, and hospitalization of, his dad. Mike said his son's behavior appeared similar to persons observed when under the influence of a drug that has been mixed with foreign substances.
