How to use "Assoil" in context?

Assoil is a practice where a patient, usually a person with a mental illness, is sequestered in an isolated area with little or no contact with the outside world. Assoil has been variously called "isolation units", "mad houses", or "asylum". The rationale for assoil is that patients in these environments will benefit from a calm and isolated environment. However, assoil has been criticized for its lack of efficacy in treating mental illness, its use of coercion and force, and its effects on the patients involved.
