Your children come first and one of their parents has to be responsible. If you have parents, relatives or friends you can stay with please do. It is obvious your spouse has chosen the drugs over you and the children. By staying you will be nothing more than an enabler of his addiction. Leave, then see what he does. If he is serious do not go back until you are sure he is on a good program for drug abuse and even at that just be there for support and leave the children out of it. I think you already knew the answer to this one.

Can you leave the home if spouse is drug abuser without that spouse knowing about it?

If you mean legally, then I would imagine it would depend on if you had children with the drug using spouse. If you do, it would be best to notify the police or contact an attorney. You have a responsibility to keep the children safe, and keeping them in a place where one parent is using drugs is not safe. If not, then all you would have to do is pack and leave.

Can your spouse witness your will?

No. An objective third party should witness the will. Having a spouse witness it will leave it vulnerable to challenge. No one who benefits from a legal document should also be the witness to the signature.
