Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you today.
I am sorry to learn of this situation. What you describe is "false imprisonment" - the facility is holding you without any legal right to do so.
If they continue to refuse to allow you to leave, contact a local attorney. If you cannot afford a local attorney (you are not paying for a lengthy legal battle, just someone who will deal with the matter long enough to get you out of the facility), then contact your County Public Defender's Office (The public defender is the agency that is responsible for defending individuals in civil commitment proceedings when faced with psychiatric holds, they should be able to assist you here as well).
You should also make a complaint to the Colorado State Attorney General's Office about this conduct (they can investigate this situation and the facility's conduct), but they probably are not going to be able to help you get out of the facility immediately.
