In brief: No way to know

Without knowing what your concerns are, it is impossible to answer your qauestion.
If one "checks in" voluntarily, usually one can "check out" voluntarily too. The exception would be if you describe serious suicidal intent or a plan to harm other people, which would compel you caregivers to seek enforced hospitalization.
