  • My dad's drunk-REALLY drunk.

    Ok so if my dad is super intoxicated(he's an alcoholic) and I leave-probable just for the night maybe a few days-can I get in trouble?

    re: My dad's drunk-REALLY drunk.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out tonight. It sounds like you’re in a pretty scary situation with your dad. It’s understandable that you would want to leave. It sounds like by leaving, you would be taking care of yourself and trying to protect yourself. That makes a lot of sense and it's really brave of you. So let’s see how we can help you out tonight.

    We aren’t legal experts here, but we are able to talk about what might happen in general. If you decide to leave without your guardian’s permission, your guardians have the right to file a runaway report with the police. If the police take the report and find you, they could force you back home. Now, if you aren’t on probation or parole, it’s not illegal to runaway. You wouldn’t be arrested, you would just be returned home.

    If you’re feeling unsafe at home and feel like you can’t live there anymore, you always have the right to file an abuse report. If that’s something that you would like to do or you want to talk through other options that you have, you can call us 24 hours a day at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We are confidential and anonymous. If you can’t call in, you can chat with us through our website ( from 4.30pm-11.30pm Central Time.
    We look forward to your call or chat.

    Best of luck to you,

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
