Can you check yourself out of a mental hospital if you were committed by court order? Posted on July 13, 2011

My wife was committed to a hospital by a police officer with an EDO. She has since been forced to stay by a doctor recommended and court ordered EDO for up to 90 days. She wants to leave the hospital. Does she have the right to deny treatment and leave on her own accord?
