(b) If the court orders less restrictive alternative treatment, the order shall specify the terms and conditions of the alternative treatment and a copy shall be delivered to the respondent. (c) If the conditions of the alternative treatment are not adhered to, the designated mental health professional may order the respondent apprehended according to the procedure defined by rules 4.1 through 4.5.
