Bring Casey's Law to Texas

This petition had 1,067 supporters

Being the parent of a child over the age of 16 who struggles with addiction is devastating in Texas. At age 16 children can sign themselves out of life saving drug rehabilitation facilities. 16?? 

I am the parent of a 24 year old heroin addict. My daughter has been to rehab 21 times. Each time she leaves when the withdrawal gets severe and the pull of the illness of addiction is too much to fight. I am not alone in this. Parents and families across the nation are burying loved ones daily. Casey's law or something similar would empower people to save loved ones lives from this deadly disease! No one under the influence of drugs/alcohol can make a rational decision. And with the opoiod epidemic in our country. Families are desperate to stop the ever increasing death rate of young addicts. Something has to be done! Please consider signing this petition and save the lives of our next generation. Don't think it won't ever effect you. It can happen to anyone. Please help.
