Can a 17-year-old move out without getting into trouble if their mother is becoming an alcoholic?

Legally, no. A minor does not decide whether or not a parent is

becoming an alcoholic or if the home environment is unsuitable.

That is decided by the state's department of social services (DCFS,

CPS, etc.).
