(a) A voluntary client may be discharged by the administrator at any time within twenty (20) days of receipt of a written request for the release by the client, his parent or guardian, and the administrator shall arrange for appropriate transition services, except:
(i) If the client was admitted on his own application and the request for discharge is made by a person other than the client, release shall be conditioned upon the client's consent;
(ii) If the client is a minor or ward, his discharge shall be conditioned upon the consent of his parent or guardian;

The administrator, as a mandatory reporter, shall contact adult protective services for appropriate proceedings.
