She left home Thursday on bad terms...

Two daughters 19 & 17. Older one had a few issues that she seems to have outgrown. Younger one is more independent, secretive, and troubled. Two weeks ago she passed out at the kitchen table, my wife called emergency for help, she recovered by the time they arrived, and they couldn't tell us the cause. My wife became suspicious and searched her room - found incriminating notes (sex drugs), booze, small cigars, rolling papers ...We did the traditional thing, rage and grounding.

Our daughter immediately became depressed and panicky, and argued it was extremely unfair and would do no good. This went on for a couple days until a major argument broke out over submitting a urine sample. She left home Thursday on bad terms.
