Ok I have a friend named Ariel. Her step dad is very abusive. Well 2 weeks ago she was late getting home becuase we had car troubles. As soon as she walked in the door Ariel got kicked out of the house. Then her parents called the cops and said she ran away and the cops believed them not Ariel. So then they just put Ariel back in the house. So calm myself down my friends took me to the mall . About and hour later I got a call from Ariel saying she cut her self. Later that night when i got home I got another call but this time from my friend Blondie's Dad. He was getting ready to call the Crisis Center on Ariel . So he did so Ariel ended up in the hospital that night. But boom they put her back in that house again.Also her step dad smokes about 3 packs of cigarettes a day and drinks 24/7. On New Years Eve I slept at that house and he hit on my a 14 year old girl. Her step dad hits her and screams at her everyday. So what should I do should I just step back or help get out of that house. Ps her room is a closet. Thank you for any help

You can work on it through the school. The adults there have to get involved if they think something is up at home. You could just go ask about talking to the school counselor, or nurse, because something is bothering YOU, and let them know what is up with her.
Are your parents going to back you up on helping her out? If she needs you to talk to someone else to help get her out of that situation?
Not being there, and knowing her, or the whole situation I can't give you any solid advice, though kids shouldn't be beaten on. It doesn't sound ok.

You can inform Child Protection Services, who will investigate. Tell them everything you know about the abuse.
this really is the most sensible reaction to the situation I can think of.
Its going to start some shti in her house, but they will atleast leave your name out of it. They never report who turned in what only that they have a complaint that is being investigated.
It would however help if it came from an adult, especially if ti came from the school.
Schoolsseem less likely to get involved these days, lawsuites and what not I guess, but still are obligated to do so when its warrented, if the process started with a school counselor and then went to the proper authorities, it would go along way to correcting shit if its is indeed as bad as it would appear, much further than just calling and complaining to them.
Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be.
