Self harm

My 15 son has started self-harming.
Just found out he and friends using cough medicine to hallucinate, and trying other drugs . He has been staying out for days on end.
Where to start, I’m so stressed out.
He isn’t understanding the gravity of his situation and is losing the great friends who are not in this scene and won’t stop seeing drug taking friends.
