Default Toxicology studies

A 15-year-old girl is brought to the pediatric emergency room by the lunchroom teacher, who observed her sitting alone and crying. On questioning, the teacher learned that the girl had taken five unidentified tablets after having had an argument with her mother about a boyfriend of whom the mother disapproved. Toxicology studies are negative, and physical examination is normal. Which of the following is the most appropriate course of action?

  1. Hospitalize the teenager on the adolescent ward
  2. Get a psychiatry consultation
  3. Get a social service consultation
  4. Arrange a family conference that includes the boyfriend
  5. Prescribe an antidepressant and arrange for a prompt clinic appointment
