Highlight

The statute requires evidence that less restrictive conditions were considered to affirm a district court's commitment order as the least restrictive course of treatment appropriate for an individual.
The statute requires other forms of intervention be considered before a district court orders forced medication as the least restrictive form of intervention necessary to meet an individual's treatment needs.
Without explanation, mere conclusory statements by the treating psychiatrist and other physician are not helpful in determining whether a district court should authorize involuntary treatment with prescribed medications.
