Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. If your son is in a severe manic state currently and is unable to take care of himself and meet his daily living requirements than you can take him to the nearest ER or call 911 where he will be evaluated and hospitalized so that he can receive the medication that he needs to stabilize. This is an urgent/emergency situation that requires him to be taken to the hospital immediately
