Thanks for the reply, Lega-Guru,
Here are some more details that may be important. He was sent to the behavioral health facility from the emergency room, where he checked in 3 days ago voluntarily for alcohol related symptoms. To my knowledge he has not been court ordered to check into the behavioral health facility. The doors exiting the facility are locked so that patients cannot leave on their own. The doctor is not willing to let him leave, so what can he do to leave? thanks.
