Oh dear @Nikkita this is such a troubling time for you. I can only imagine how worried you are.
Without knowing all the details, my initial thought was that this is risk taking behaviour. Teens now a days are take risks in different ways to predecessors especially in cities. Dr Ian Lillico from the Boys Forward Institute in WA suggests that all teens are encouraged to partake in safe risks regularly - scouts, mountain biking, rock climbing etc. Of course mild mannered teens may see risk in less dangerous activities.
Have you read the Reachout article on risk-taking?
I am sure there is someone on the forum who may have better suggestions. I hope they can share some ideas for safe risk taking activities as well.
Good luck, big hugs and please let us know how you go.

Hey there @Nikkita, it's been awhile since we last heard from you, how have you been recently?
I'm glad that the strategy from another parent was helpful to you! Did you son end up going to his appointment with the services?
Thinking of you
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
