Gary Zalkin & Psychiatric Commitment: Advocating For Families

Attorney Zalkin represents families seeking psychiatric or substance abuse treatment for their loved ones. He explores alternative strategies and provides guidance about initiating the psychiatric commitment process. Attorney Zalkin can speak with agencies that have authority to bring individuals to hospitals on a family’s behalf or strategize with the family to present information to these agencies themselves.

He navigates the pros and cons of family members testifying at the commitment hearing and advocates for their interests with the psychiatric facility or substance abuse facility throughout treatment.
