Abstract

The conditions in which involuntary treatment takes place are presented. Ukrainian legislation has not changed since Soviet times. Therapeutic institutions still have repressive regulations. Detention in these institutions still results from the need to isolate dangerous people for the sake of social security. Less attention is paid to therapy and treatment.
