Youngkin Launches TDO Prompt Placement Task Force

Governor Glenn Youngkin announced the launch of a major initiative to end the shortage of behavioral health treatment services for those with a Temporary Detention Order. The Prompt Placement TDO Task Force brings together government agencies, public and private hospitals, law enforcement, and other community partners to address the shortage. Right now the average wait time for an individual under a TDO to receive a placement and care has risen to 43 hours.
