I hope your clan doesn't have to face anything remotely like this entirely ugly story.
Multiple friends have already died from overdoses. They mourn the deceased and continue on their way -- no lesson learned. She is still a teenager and nothing she has done thus far will prevent her from a successful life, but does she want success? That is the question. Not all indications point that way at this time. Addiction is a helluva thing. I remain cautiously hopeful.
