There is no simple solution to help teenagers in crisis. But 7Everyday Hero John Davis is succeeding at helping entire families cope with life’s challenges.
He started the 2Xtreme Foundation in 1999 to help teen boys.
“It was formed mostly out of frustration of having to turn families away because they couldn’t afford therapy,” said Davis.
Davis is a counseling psychologist who focuses on at-risk teenage boys.
“I can see who they’re going to be when they’re 25, they just can’t see where they’re at because they’re so stuck,” explained Davis.
2Xtreme’s approach is multifaceted. In addition to meeting one on one with the teen, the foundation offers a mom’s group, and a dad’s group.
“At the end of the day, these guys don’t need me, they need their parents. They need relationships. People crave relationships,” Davis said.
