If you believe a friend or relative is in need of involuntary addiction treatment, you can file for the Marchman Act in Flagler County. The Marchman Act Florida requirements state that a family member or close friend can petition the court requesting the involuntary stabilization and assessment when that individual does not recognize a need for treatment and their actions might endanger themselves or other people.


If the person struggling with addiction lives or is residing in Flagler County, Florida, the Marchman Act allows you to seek addiction help in Florida even when your friend or family member is resisting all other attempts at support. The Court will review your petition for the Marchman Act in Florida, and may order the individual to be picked up by a local sheriff or law enforcement officer. This decision will partly depend on the availability of state funded rehabs in Florida, and/or an ability to pay for private treatment programs.
