  • I need to get out but i have no money no job and no safe house

    My family and i have all been through a hellish 2 years, ive been struggling with an assortment of mental issues for years and alcoholism. My parents have picked up this nasty habit and when they drink it becomes a very abusive and frankly terribly environment for me to be exposed in. I desperately need to get myself out of this toxic situation before it gets worse, my parents are good people, they just sometimes care about there liquor more than me or my brother. I need some advice about how to get away from my family as quickly and cleanly as possible (ps i just turned 18 and i graduate on the 7th)

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to us. You definitely don't deserve to be abused for any reason for any circumstance, and being abused is not your fault. Since you are 18, you are an adult in most states (you can search your state's age of majority, which is the age you can legally move out), so it is very likely that you can legally move out. If you think this would be problematic or are having other concerns about leaving home, call us or chat with us (1-800-786-2929,

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