PMID:  10083954     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Psychiatric patients have always been subjected to coerced treatment or management in the community. In the 1970s, civil rights litigation established formalized procedures for such coercion. This article discusses the types of procedures established and their effectiveness as well as their flaws. Suggestions are made to improve the efficacy of existing procedures.
