Time to step up the consequences. Luckily she is only 15 and you still have some time to turn things around. I think it is time to send her to an adolescent treatment facility for a few months. Either that or get her into a boarding school. If she continues on this path then it really gets worse. Most likely it will lead to drug use and an early pregnancy. In order to curb her behavior it is going to take a drastic intervention. Boarding school or long-term treatment center.
