She can only be forced into rehab if she is a danger to herself or others. if that is the case you should be able to have the police “chapter” her (put her in the hospital)

Answer by charlton_g_w
impossible. you might be able to have her committed if she is really a danger to herself or others (and that is usually about a 72 hour hold) but otherwise, you are SOL.

if you are over 18, get away from her. far far away and GET YOUR BUTT TO ALANON NOW…. NOW NOW NOW ALANON.
