I think my family's trying to do that to me. It's not the first time I hear them talking about it but I think this time it's more serious. If they wanna get rid of me so badly then fuck them. I'll move out but I need to know if they can force into one of those things.
I know the law is different depenting on where you live but I can't give away my location so just give me a general answer. I'm freaking out, please.

Involuntary commitment is much harder to do once you are a legal adult. This serious procedure varies from state to state, but in general, involuntary commitments are either judicial or emergency and require input from a doctor, therapist, and/or the court. Often, after a suicide attempt, temporary commitment is mandatory.
Every person has the right to the least restrictive treatment, which isn’t always the most beneficial treatment.
Here is a link you can use to look up specifics and what is required on civil/judicial commitment by state: www.treatmentadvocacycenter.org/.../know-the-laws-in-your-state
But, I think as long as you haven't abused drugs or tried to commit suicide, chances are that you would be just fine.2
