  • My patents are using drugs and treating me like ****. Im running away tonight!

    For years my parents have been addicted to pills. They take many diffrent kinds. They are bigg into tramadols and hydros. My sister ran away and had told on them about them abusing pills and drugs. They got out of it. Me and my sister didnt really know what was all going on at that time. We got queationed amd didnt have many answers to give. When i was about 15 they stopped hiding it from me. They sold my playstation 3 i worked hard for so they could get drugs. I know some of the people they buy them from. Theyvare always selling my things to get the drugs. If i dont let them they ground me and treat me like **** its the same ol game over amd over. They have some of my stuff in pawn right now and bought pills with the money they got. Theres food here but never alot. They waste all the money they can kn drugs. Tbey get so desprate they will ask me to steal them if i see them at friends houses that i go to. I dont want to steal. Wxpecially presriptions. Ill come home empty handed amd ill get treated lime ****. They ground me. Dont let me do anything. They take out there problems on me when they are out of oills they sell stuff i buy with my own money they steal from me they ask to borrow money and never pay me back but if i dont borrow the money they treat me like **** until i give in. The force me to either support there drug habbit or live a life of ****. I have no choice but to get out of here. I cant take this anymore its getting so bad i just meed to get tf out. Everytime they ate out of pills i never wanna come home becuase i know what its gunna be like when i get there im over being treated lime **** and im over my patents i want notbing to do with yhem anymore im leaving tonight and wjen i get cought im going to tell them about what my parents are doing and how ****** it is at 17 and i need help on what i can do and what can happen when i bring them to court

    Hello there,

    Thank you for writing to us. It definitely seems like a really frustrating situation to be in. It’s understandable that you would be upset with how your parents are treating you and the things that they are asking you to do, like steal for them and give up your things. It sounds like them selling your play station 3 really stung. It must hurt a lot to have to be punished for not being able to provide what they are asking of you.

    There's definitely a lot to think about when running, like who you would stay with, how you would get there, how you would enroll in school, and how you would pay for things. We are happy to discuss with you some safe options specific to your situation if you decide to call or chat with us.

    Do you think your parents would report you as a runaway? If you are reported as a runaway it’s typically just a status offense; however, sometimes people helping runaways are at risk for charges such as harboring a runaway or crossing state lines with a minor. These charges are often just misdemeanors, but might be something to explore if you or whoever you would be staying with are concerned.

    It sounds like you are considering reporting their behavior. If that’s an option you want to explore, we can help you to make an abuse/neglect report with your state child protective services. You might also find this website and hotline useful to ask more questions about reporting abuse and what those consequences might look like. or 1-800-422-4453.

    It’s great that you are looking for help and we thank you for sharing your story on our online forum. We hope this information is helpful and that you choose to reach out to us through phone or chat. Remember we are here 24/7 if you want to talk about your situation in more detail.

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