hard to say. not all cases of abuse are documented or reported. There is no national database that has a number. Local shelters will have the number for the animals that they …see, but other than that, there is no way to tell.

We can't answer that question specifically. We do not know the adolescent, nor any of the conditions surrounding the situation. We suggest that you speak with a family service…s counselor and explore the possibility of getting him into treatment. Apart from that, when you can legally remove him or her from the household, you should do so. Allowing them to live at home and abuse you only encourages their behavior. Finally, we suggest some Al-Anon or NarAnon meetings. You can find links to meeting schedules below this answer. They are support groups for people with addicted family members, and their information could be very helpful.
