Houston Press investigates a Texas psychiatric center where administrators hired Dr. Steven Charles Dilsaver to oversee research projects relating to mental health. Years later authorities would discover that Dilsaver lacked a proper license to practice psychiatric medicine and Dilsaver was committing patients to drug research against their will. Dilsaver himself was mentally ill, suffering from the same mania and depression as the patients he coerced into his studies. (Oct. 12-18, 1995)
