Default Why do they allow you to leave?

I have known two people that went to a detox center and walked out after one day. I always thought they made you stay but I guess not. Why do they allow them to just give up and leave? Are there places that don`t allow you to leave like that or are they all the same way?

There are very, very few reasons that any government/corporate entity can hold a person against their will in this country. Even if a person consents to treatment, and even consents to be held for a time, a revocation of that consent has to be acknowledged or the center is facing a great deal of legal liability.

The length of the detox process varies from person to person and from the drug being abused. There are some who are outpatient centers.
