About the Book

This is a qualitative analysis of forced treatment by someone who has been forcibly treated. Inspired in part by institutional ethnography, this interpretive inquiry assembles and analyses: focus group and interview transcriptions, psychiatric tribunal texts, literature on coercion and institutions, and personal narratives involving so-called 'mad' experience. Through psychiatric workers' and activists' perceptions, I explore psychiatric survivor experiences under a 'Community Treatment Order', or 'CTO', a new legal mechanism in Ontario, Canada, which can be used to compel psychiatric drug treatment for people leaving psychiatric facilities. Participants discuss force, coercion, and problems related to the medico-legal status of CTO's, including 'consent to treatment' rights, and 'insight into mental illness' tests. This analysis highlights cyclical practices of power that sustain psychiatric institutionalization as it expands beyond physical sites into the private sphere. I argue the CTO constitutes a chemical imprisonment within the body.
