If a loved one or family member needs addiction help in Florida, you may be able to use the Marchman Act in Citrus County. In Florida, a court may order involuntary addiction treatment for individuals who refuse voluntary treatment and might present a danger to themselves or others, provided they meet the Marchman Act Florida requirements.
In Citrus County, you will file the necessary petitions with the Clerk of Circuit Court and Comptroller’s office. Once you have started the process of initiating the Marchman Act in Florida, it will be up to the Court whether an assessment is ordered. Based on the results of an involuntary evaluation and assessment, court ordered addiction treatment may be ordered.
You will be notified of these hearings and will be required to attend, or your petition may be dismissed. The court will also take into account if there are beds available in state funded rehabs in Florida, or if you or the addicted person has the ability to pay for private treatment if ordered.
