In brief: You can try

Despite today's emphasis on preventing bullying by peers, a child or teen can do little about emotional abuse in the home.
Pretending to love the parents until escape is possible is often the best junior can do. But it's very much worth telling teachers, your physician ("family counseling"), pastor. If they lay a finger on you or wake you up at night to scream at you, call the police.

Especially, stay drug-free -- not even cannabis. If things do come to police attention, if there is anything at all to suggest drug use on your part, the "system" will conclude that you are the problem.
