One of my good friends needs a way out..

Her mother is bad on drugs. She's strung out on some pretty hardcore drugs. her mother is always freaking out on her and gets really angry and aggressive because of the drugs and does thangs out of spite just to make her life harder. My friend says she goes through heck at her house and has spent the night with me and cried on her way home because she hates being home so bad. Her mother never has enough money to buy her makeup, hair spray, clothes ect. her mother is always very bipolar actin and will scream and yell at her for no apparent reason. she's miserable at her house. she's about to turn 17 and has a 19 year old boyfriend who makes a really good amount of money and always takes care of her needs. she needs some ideas on how to get out of her house. her mother won't let her leave. she's thinking about black mailing her with the drugs so that her mother will emancipate her. she's plannin on movin in with her boyfriend who has plenty of enough money to support her and himself. anyone have any ideas? (sorry for it being so lengthy)

Just call the Dept of Human Services. Theyll get her out of there pronto.

Yes but all that is very stressful on a child of the age ,if you see my post will be more easier and less disruptive to her everyday life.trust me I did it.

Seventeen? Thats nearly adult, not a baby, and i imagine a foster home wouldnt be any more stressful than the situation shes in now. Probably much better and it would only be for a year or less until she turned 18.

have her call child protective services, with her age and because she has somewhere to go they will pull yet from the house and start her on emancipation procedures.

If she called would they let her get emancipated and move in with her boyfriend? Because she had no close relatives or no where else to go and doesn't want to be put in a home.

Don't think so. I am guessing foster care until 18.

it all depends on the state.

Tell her to pray to God for guidance in what to do. The Lord will hold her hand through it. I'm glad she has her boyfriend for help but she should not move in with him. Not knowing her complete situation I can't be any more specific about what to do but I know if she turns this over to God, He will lead the way out.

Tell her to tell her mother that she needs to get away from the drugs and have a better life or she'll call the police or cps. She shouldn't have to live like that. Good luck

You need to help your friend,she needs to sneak her stuff out of the house one by one where its not noticeable and leave with out any expectancy! She can't know your leaving. So make sure the mom doesn't suspect a thing!and never black mail or she might get very violent and threaten her.i did this with my father and it worked out for me and I would love for you to try.(or your friend.)
