Definitions for "Chemical restraint"
The use of chemical means, normally drugs but including sprays, to prevent someone from doing something. Chemical restraint was first developed in the 1950s when it was seen as the way to enable people with mental health problems who had previously been held in residential care to be live in the community without endangering other people. Chemical restraint has been shown to have severe side effects and tends to interfere with treatment as the person is not able to receive most forms of treatment while under the influence of the chemical used.
