Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

Unfortunately, this is not a residential landlord tenant issue, you signed a contract with the treatment center and failure to comply with any of their rules can be grounds for immediate discharge from the program and removal from the premises. So, legally, the state eviction laws do not apply here and they can make a violating patient leave immediately. They do not have to store the patient's property and, in fact, they do not want the liability or responsibility for that property and claims by a disgruntled patient that property is missing or broken.

If the patient had medication at the facility that the patient had paid for, they need to give them that medication as part of their personal belongings.

The center is supposed to provide a discharge paper explaining the reason for discharge from the program, but that alone is not grounds to sue or dispute being removed from the center.

However, refusal to comply with the program terms is grounds for immediate removal and if you look at the contract you signed when you entered the program you would see that it tells you that.

Thank you for your reply.I've done some mean things in my life but I have never put someone in such a terrible positi on. For me it wasnt bad because I had friends in Orlando. I can possibly move Al that on my bike

Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunately, these treatment programs have zero tolerance policies for ANY rule violation. So, when any of the patients violates any rule, the facilities simply use zero tolerance without concern for the issues you are right to be concerned about. So while I do understand your position, legally the facility can do just what they did.
