What is an involuntary commitment (IVC)?

What is an involuntary commitment (IVC)?

We often admit individuals by court order because they have been deemed a danger to themselves or others. Whether an individual is in our care voluntarily or not, a court hearing will be scheduled within fifteen days of admission through our mental health court program. The goal of IVC court hearings is to ensure that individuals’ rights are upheld and that the least invasive measures possible are used at all times.

For involuntary admissions, family involvement is still a key aspect of treatment. If a parent or guardian has any questions or would like more details on the IVC process, notices of hearing or any court-related matter, please contact our court liaison at 910-577-1400 ext. 2259.
