Knowing how to get someone committed into a rehab facility is not an easy task to do. Rehabs are designed to give individuals help with substance abuse, or other harmful addictions they have. The rehabs offer support, therapy and counseling. Most individuals are against investing in the time it will take to make them better. Some individuals will deny having a problem. This is a sign of denial, and when approached by you, they may accuse you of being out to do them harm. Individuals eighteen and under can be forced into rehab against their will. For those who are older it is not that simple. But, there are a few steps you can take to ensure your friend of love one can get the help they need.
- Talk with them. Give the person a chance to admit they have a problem, and want help. Let them know you know they have a problem, and you want to have them. Discuss rehab treatment. Do not trust them to seek help out on their own. Offer to go to the rehab facility with them to check in.
- Call a family intervention. If you are trying to have someone in your family committed. Get together with your family and have an intervention with them. Act immediately afterwards and drive the person straight to the rehabilitation facility. After the intervention the person may become angry, and violent make sure you are prepared for this.
- Take them to the rehab facility. You can take the person to the rehab facility, and have them sign themselves in, but the truth is they can check themselves out at anytime. They do not have to stay, and there is nothing you can do about it if the person is over 18.
