Will I be forced to stay in treatment?
We strongly urge all patients to complete their treatment plan, as premature departure from medical care may elevate the risk of relapse and overdose. However, individuals retain the right to leave treatment at any point, even against medical advice, as long as there is no imminent danger to themselves or others.
