  • 15 and want to run away

    I'm 15 living in Ohio and my parents want to send me away to a rehab school in Connecticut. I don't want to go but the only other option is they want to put me in a group home. They've pulled me out of school and I am never allowed to be alone. I have to do everything with a parent, even go to the bathroom. I feel choked in my own house and I can't even do anything about it. I want to leave so bad but I'm worried that they will call the cops and I will get into more trouble. I was thinking about going to my friends house but I don't want their family to get in trouble either. I also don't know how I would go to school if I run away.

    Hi there, thank you for reaching out. It sounds like you have been having issues with your parents wanting to send you away and being very controlling and not giving you any space. It might be helpful to work with them on why they are not seeming to trust you and see if that is something that can be worked through. If you were to call our hotline, we can even do a conference call with one of your parents to help mediate that conversation. It sounds like they are wanting to send you to a rehab school which you are not wanting to go to. If you would like to contact us to discuss this further and explore more options or possible resources, please call our hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or chat us online at We hope to hear from you soon.
    Be safe,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
