People can now be forcibly drugged in their own homes in every state in the country.

Scary prospect. I need to look more into this law, but no one should ever be forced into treatment. As someone that was almost forced into a horrific treatment after being forced into the hospital, the idea of being forcibly medicated even outside of a psychiatric hospital scares the shit out of me. We, as consumers of mental health services, can already lose our rights at the drop of a hat. We don’t need this brought into our homes. It really scares me that someone might think I “need” meds and can force me into it easier than they already can…
