    Hi there,
    Thank you for reaching out to NRS. It’s brave of you to reach out for help, and it’s good that you can recognize when a situation has become abusive. Since you are 18, you are a legal adult and no one can force you legally to go back to a situation that you don’t want to go to. We don’t want to give advice without knowing more about your situation, but you’re not alone, and you deserve better than an abusive situation. Some more resources that might be able to help you are Love is Respect, which is available at or (800) 799-7233, and The National Domestic Violence Hotline at or (800) 799-7233
    Our ability to help over the forums is limited so the best way for us to help you is by calling us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or by live chatting with us at if you have further questions. We’re here to talk 24/7 and we’re confidential. We hope to hear from you soon.

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