Default Committed to a rehabilitation clinic in Tijuana, Mexico for consuming Cannabis

I was involuntarily committed to a "rehabilitation" clinic in Tijuana, mexico for consuming Cannabis. By the manipulation of the Clinic and order of my parents. Eight men forcefully kidnapped me, put me in a van. And took me to rehab where I was kept a year against my will. I was born in the U.S.A in California. Can I do anything to retaliate? Or what do I do so it does not happen again?

Default Re: Committed to a rehabilitation clinic in Tijuana, Mexico for consuming Cannabis

In many cases, people who struggle with substance use have difficulty recognizing and accepting that a real problem exists, and that professional help is absolutely necessary. Even if an addicted person knows that he has a problem with drug addiction, he may still be unwilling to accept treatment for it. Professional treatment for a substance use disorder (and any other co-occurring mental health concerns) is the most successful way to overcome addiction and experience lasting wellness.

It can be difficult to persuade an addicted person receive professional treatment if he is unwilling to accept it. In some cases, it may be necessary for family members to send an addicted person to treatment against his or her will. Laws of most of the states allow some form of involuntary commitment for addiction treatment.
