She is an adult at 18 and can make adult decisions, even if those decisions are poor.   If she is under some type of disability that would make her legally unable to make decisions for herself, ie, incompetent, you could apply to the Court for a Guardianship which would take away her ability to make decisions for herself. Otherwise, She can legally move out.
