When there is money involved, yes, family or others that could gain, can have a person involuntarily committed so they can get control of whatever assests the committed person is "mismanaging"

I remember one case where the guy was a widower, and hooked up with a lovely young thing. He spent a lot of money giving presents to this gal and his kids did not like "their inheritence" being wasted on someone they did not like so they tried to get a judge to declare their dad mentally incompitent to care for his own affairs, with them as trustees.

Made good reading in the new paper anyway.`
