Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Yes, you can indeed obtain guardianship over him and once you do then you can arrange for him to be forcibly committed to a facility and you can agree to him being forcibly medicated as well. But you would need to go to court and have a local attorney representing you and file the guardianship, since the court will require an attorney to be present.
