How long can someone be held for the initial assessment under the Marchman Act?

Under the Marchman Act, somebody can be held for assessment for up to five days. However, if that’s not enough time for the treatment provider to conduct the assessment, they can ask the court for an additional seven days so they can complete the assessment and then report to the court what their findings are.
