Case No. 04-R-227
Southeast Judicial District, Stutsman County
Mentally ill persons who require treatment are entitled to the least restrictive treatment that will meet their treatment needs.
When deciding whether alternative treatment to hospitalization is adequate, the district court is required to make a two-part inquiry: (1) whether a treatment program other than hospitalization is adequate to meet the individual's treatment needs; and (2) whether an alternative treatment program is sufficient to prevent harm or injuries that an individual may inflict on himself or others.
When available alternative treatment programs are insufficient to prevent harm or injures that an individual may inflict on himself or others, less restrictive treatment cannot be ordered.
