    My husband is drugs and alcohol addict and mentally and verbally abusive every time he runs out of supplies. He is controlling and demands my reports every day, following his exact instructions, and extremely abusive with dirty language.
    It doesn't matter if I comply with his orders, or not, he will create the reason to scream and yell at me. He also threaten to threw me out of the house and verbally forced me to leave in the middle of the night in a bathrobe and socks. Locked me out of the house and much more to bring up. The police can't do anything, other that ask him to be a good guy. They even didn't do a search for drugs in his garage. What I can do to protect myself?

    Move out and get a divorce. Why you are staying there is beyond me.

    It isn't s police matter yet.
    You are in control here. You either choose to stay in this situation or you choose to leave it behind.

    You can leave and file for divorce. You're an adult. You aren't his slave. He doesn't own you. If you stay, you'll just get more abuse.

    See if any of this helps. Find a shelter. They can help you figure out what you need to do. Find a lawyer asap. Don't tell him what you're going to do.

    The police aren't going to intervene until one of you assaults the other most likely.

    Trust me - being married to or living with an addict does nothing but get worse. It will never get better.
