I am looking for advice to help my friend who recently let her 16yr old leave home. The teen is with her father who has never really been in her life. She started experimenting in drugs last summer. Eventually she was caught at school and was transfered to another school. That did not work out well. The teen refused to follow the rules at home and decided she wanted to go live with her real dad. Mom felt she had no other chice anymore and let her go, hoping this would be a solution to a family falling apart. I don\'t know how well things are going with the girl, but my friend is falling apart. She is not adjusting to this life change. She is very hurt and does not know how to deal with all this. She is a mess physically and emotionally. I have spoke with her and told her to find a support group of parents who have or are dealing with the same issues. She feels all alone and she needs to know she is not alone. I think a support group would help but I also want to be there for her with some sdvice that may help. I have never been through this type of situation so I choose my words very carefully. Can anyone help me to help her.
