Sage-We've dealt with this in my family. You can't commit them unless they agree to it and then when a doctor does finally get them committed, they only keep them for 30 days. You can't force them to take their meds because that's a "violation of their rights". You can't get them sterilized without their agreement, even though you have to raise the kids they keep having. The laws "protecting" their rights keep them from getting any help.
