13 years old daughter running away

I have to work I am a single mom and I dont know what to do about my 13 year old daughter. I suspect she's smoking pot and having sex. She goes to parties without my permission and stays out late or doesn't come home at all. She just doesn't care what I say.

Is dad in the picture at all? She obviously need to be supervised, do you have any family in the area that can help you out?
Take her to the doctor and get a drug screen. At least you'll know what she's taking, then seek out a counselor to help her with that issue.
You need to step up and parent, she's 13! Take away all phone, computer, and financial privileges. School and home. Period. Until she can earn some trust back. Keep removing privileges; the bedroom door, friend visiting etc. If she runs away, call the police.
