If an argument can be made and supported by a doctor that she could cause harm to herself or others she can be held for 72 hour hold in a mental facilty. A doctor must attest to this to get the hold placed on her. Instead why not point out to her you could go this route but prefer not to and see if she will go voluntarily.
