Individuals receiving psychiatric in-patient treatment at psychiatric hospitals have legal rights. The rights of a patient depend on what legal status the individual has. There are three main legal statuses: voluntary, involuntary, and Conditional Extension Pending Placement (CEPP). Each of the pages below has information regarding what each status is, and what legal rights those individuals have when receiving psychiatric treatment. For a complete view, you may want to explore all three pages. If you have questions, please contact an advocate at Disability Rights NJ, and we would be happy to help you.
