Aligning and Streamlining Mental Health and Substance Abuse Commitment StatutesWebsite or Online Data - 2012
When an individual is experiencing a severe mental breakdown or substance abuse emergency, they may be involuntarily committed to a mental health institute, if they pose an immediate danger to themselves or people in their community. These involuntary commitments, used for treatment or care, are meant to be used a last resort when less restrictive alternatives are unavailable.
