A couple of months ago, I spent a reasonable amount of time attempting to connect with a family to conduct an alcohol and drug assessment on their 16 year old daughter. We scheduled the assessment only for her to runaway again from home. She was picked up by the police and placed in a facility awaiting a court hearing. The next morning I arrived at the facility to conduct the assessment where I was informed that she had run away from the facility. A week later she was found dead due to a substance-related cause.
