  1. Emergency commitment and legislative reform in New Jersey.

    Article - En anglais

    The effects of a state commitment law that combines use of the dangerousness criterion, screening for less restrictive alternatives, and a new mental health structure were investigated.

    A time-series analysis of the number ofcommitments in a 12-year period at one screening center revealed that the expected outcome of the legislation-a decrease in state-hospital commitments-was not realized.
