Programs that conduct investigations to determine whether an individual is endangered by a drug or alcohol use disorder. The program may request an order for involuntary treatment if the person is found to be at risk of self harm or harm to another in situations where all voluntary options have been exhausted. Substance use disorder treatment orders are issued by the court following a hearing which is held to examine the evidence and to consider the testimony of people involved in the situation. In the case of juveniles younger than age 18, the order may also include instructions which authorize the apprehension of the youth and confinement in a protective setting for detoxification and/or further assessment.
