At what point is a facility legally liable for a client's well being? And how do certain places like rehabs/detox centers get away with clients signing legal contracts when under the influence?

The only incident I can think of is a friend if mine who overdosed. Someone alerted the police, who went to his home and called the ambulance to take him to the ER. They worked on him, and pumped him out, and then when he was 'awake' had him sign the typical papers. Is this what you mean?

No. I mean having someone sign papers when they're "awake" but heavily under the influence.
