When is intervention legal?
Forcibly restraining someone, keeping them confined to a particular space against their will for drug or alcohol intervention or cult deprogramming may be done with the very best of intentions. Usually, the detainee’s loved ones and immediate family are behind the move. But if the person detained is an adult and hasn’t been found mentally incompetent to make decisions for themselves, is it legal? Could the person being so detained bring charges of kidnapping or forcible detention?
Does anyone know of criminal complaints being sustained against interventionists or deprogrammers? Are there legal steps required to avoid problems with the law when an intervention or cult deprogramming is planned?
