Defence Disruptive Therapy
Defence Disruptive Therapy program was an experimental program developed by Dr. Barker in the mid-1960’s.  The program consisted of injecting inmates with drugs suggested to psychiatrists by other patients.  These included LSD, amphetamines and Ritalin, and were frequently mixed together with alcohol resulting in toxic hallucinogenic cocktails.

Predictably, by late 1967, the patients who received “treatment” under this program experienced an increased risk of homicide and suicide.
