Emergency Authorization of Medical Treatment for the Mentally Ill

In Virginia, a person can be forced to undergo medical treatment if they are too mentally ill to understand that their resistance to such treatment is harmful to them. While these laws do not allow a person to be hospitalized for psychiatric treatment or to be forcibly administered anti-psychotic medication, these laws do assist individuals in getting medical treatment for their family or friends suffering from a mental illness. Our firm has experience in these types of cases and has assisted individuals in obtaining treatment for their mentally ill family or friends in these emergency situations.
