After a few attempts, It will get sent back to the sender. If the letter petains to contacting a person about a debt obligation, the law presumes that a reasonable attempt has been made as the post office or courier service will mark the correspondence as the addresse refused acceptance. That in turn means that the creditor can proceed with whatever action is required to collect the debt owed.

THAT IS NOT TRUE SERVICE UPON A PERSON MUST BE PERFECTED IN ORDER FOR YOU TO PROCEED WITH A COURT CASE.

SOME CASES PERTAINING TO RENTALS AND SUCH IF THE PERSON HAS ABANDON THE PREMISES THAN THAT MAY ALLOW YOU TO PROCEED WITH A COURT CASE

CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL COURT ON THE RULES AND PROCEDURE REGARDING SERVICES BY PROCESS

ONLY IN THE CASE OF A PERSON SEEKING A DIVORCE FROM A MISSING SPOUSE CAN YOU GET A COURT AUCTION GOING AND THAT (TYPE OF DIVORCE) IS THE LONGEST TO GET SOME STATES IT 120 DAY WAITING PERIOD.

Call the Rehab facility and ask the administrator if a sheriff's deputy is capable of serving a patient at that center. If they are not, then you will need to send the papers as a certified letter.
