The Marchman Act and Involuntary Commitment

Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a life-threatening disease that kills thousands of people every year. The disease has the ability to hijack an addict's brain and strip them of their ability to make crucial life or death decisions. In these cases, the addict is beyond their own ability to seek treatment and impervious to the intervention process. 

Left to their own devices an addict will inevitably succumb to the worst possible circumstances. South Florida Intervention has partnered with qualified professionals who can utilize The Marchman Act to service qualifying cases at no additional cost to our clients.

The Marchman Act is a Florida law that provides a means of involuntary assessment, stabilization, and treatment of a person addicted to alcohol or drugs. Invoking the Marchman Act for your loved one may be their last hope of getting help.
