You may need to have him involuntarily committed to a treatment facility. This can only be done if the individual represents an iminent danger to himself or others. There is an outpatient as well as inpatient process an individual can be ordered to participate in.
Per Georgia Statutes:
Court may commit a person with mental illness who
(A)(i) presents a substantial risk of imminent harm to self or others as manifested by either recent overt or recent expressed threats of violence or
(ii) is so unable to care for that person's own physical health and safety as to create an imminently life-endangering crisis; and
(B) is in need of involuntary inpatient treatment
Court may order "outpatient" if the court determines that there is such available outpatient treatment which the patient will likely obtain so as to minimize the likelihood of the patient's becoming an inpatient.
"Outpatient" is a person who is mentally ill, and
(A) who is not an inpatient but who, based on the person's treatment history or current mental status, will require outpatient treatment in order to avoid predictably and imminently becoming an inpatient;
(B) who because of the person's current mental status, mental history or nature of the person's mental illness is unable voluntarily to seek or comply with outpatient treatment; and
(C) who is in need of involuntary treatment.
