Unless there's a whole lot more to that situation than what you've mentioned (I'm assuming a court hasn't given them some unusual powers over you), then no, if you're at least 18 they cannot legally restrain you, prevent you from leaving, bring you back if you've left, or enlist police assistance to do anything other than check to make sure you're okay.
