A drug-addicted 15-year-old can refuse treatment and consent for his/her parents to speak with a doctor or therapist.
This poses a problem for parents. Drugs can easily control an adolescent's mind. If they become addicted, they are not thinking independently -- rather, they are dependent on a substance.
