As part of its larger MK-ULTRA project the CIA gave money to Dr. Ewen Cameron, at McGill University. Cameron was a pioneer in the sensory-deprivation techniques for which Jonathan Alter has issued his approval. Cameron once locked up a woman in a small white box for thirty-five days, deprived of light, smell and sound. The CIA doctors were amazed at this dose, knowing that their own experiments with a sensory deprivation tank in 1955 had induced severe psychological reactions in less than forty hours

A sensory deprivation tank is still the best method in cracking uncooperatives.
Most can't last 40 hours before suffering a psychotic snap.
If they are fried and crispy, your only going to breed resentment from the strong willed ones.

Then again, you throw a more creative person into sendep, and it'll take quite literally months to break them.
I would have a hard time believing anyone can last on a 40 hour acid trip or similiar product without cracking up.
