I put my son in as a younger child for mental illness and suicidal attempts. He was in middle school though, not a grown child. It's heartbreaking, but you have to do what you have to do to get them help, make them better and keep them safe.
You have to realize though, that each person is different and each person regardless of the support or help that they may have, they will make their own choices, their own mistakes and some never get better. I hope that your situation improves.
