Seek legal advice and get supervised visits due to the use of drugs and abusive behaviour. He would not be awarded custody if you can prove he is taking drugs and that he lives in a drug taking family unit. Things can get messy proving this but a simple drugs test should be enough evidence that a judge needs. It is quite rare that a father is given custody. Normally this only happens if the father can prove, alcohol, drug or physical abuse to the child by the mother. The best things to do is find a lawyer through a womens charity and get help. The fact you have already logged with police the kidnapping then he is seen as a flight risk and getting supervised visitation should be quite easy.
