I want to be there for my sister, but that will involve forcing her out of an unhealthy situation. Is it okay to force her to be unhappy b/c I think she's unhappy?

Make contact with family & her friends. That will give you a reality check as to whether to intervene or leave be. Most people who reject advice do so because they don't feel supported & respected. Do you have a history of proposing solutions? Start by building good will & work on getting her first to agree on the problem.
