Ohio Addiction Treatment Law Only Used Once

As explained in this article from the Cleveland Plain Dealer, only one Ohio family has utilized a law that allows them to force a loved one into an addiction treatment program.

The law remains controversial: it is arguable how effective treatment is when it is not voluntary, and the families must be willing and able to pay the entire cost of the treatment, including making an up-front deposit with the court.
