How should I cut off my parents?

A good mate of mine was endangered not so long ago. She had a lot of shit going on, I said she should contact the authorities and remember that she was in England, and that society and the law would support her right live her own life. She refused to contact the authorities, Just over a week and a half later, her brother and cousin break into her flat and kidnap her. The family at first won't let her out of her room, then graduate to not letting her leave the house without an escort. Her family start saying that she's evil, that she's some kind of demon. They actually preform an exorcism on her. A shot time after that I get a phone call at 2:30 in the morning. She says her father has just threatened to murder her. I tell her to call the police, and that I'll drive down, let her stay with me for a bit until she can sort things out.
The really fucked up thing?
Not the first ex-muslim friend of mine to have a story to play out this way.
Your parents may be saints, simply upset you don't believe their fairy tales, but experience has taught me, take care of yourself first. And if you meet up with them, set something in place so they can't take you against your will.
`But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
`Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
`How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
`You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'
