A federal jury in Alexandria found yesterday that a Florida-based drug rehabilitation agency held a 19-year-old Fairfax County man against his will, but that he had not suffered undue physical or emotional damage while in the agency's program.

After deliberating about 90 minutes, the six-member civil jury reported to U.S. District Court Judge Albert V. Bryan Jr. that they agreed with Fred Collins' assertion that Straight Inc. had falsely imprisoned him in its St. Petersburg facility and, briefly, in its new Northern Virginia facility in Springfield.

The jury dismissed additional contentions by Collins that he was assaulted and made to suffer emotional distress while in the drug program.
