Many of these resources can be helpful no matter where you live. And some are locally focused in Richmond, VA. Some of the nonprofits have national chapters.

How to obtain a Temporary Detention Order (TDO) in Virginia -A magistrate may issue a medical temporary detention order if an adult is incapable of making in informed decision to accept necessary medical treatment. A medical temporary detention order allows the person to be detained for 24 hours to permit necessary medical treatment for a person over 18. The police in Richmond only transport and stand by until the TDO is issued.

I have updated this section to separate out each of the resource pages.
