Another question, were you free to leave the facility of your own free will? There are different types of facilities, was it a medical treatment facility or a mental treatment facility? I have a family member who lost their husband, shortly after they said they couldn't cope and needed help. She went to a facility and she was legally committed for 30 days. I would tend to think that would be a matter of ones permanent public record whereas your neighborhood church based recovery program probably is not.
