BlueFire is a leading therapeutic wilderness program combining the best of individualized clinical work, family therapy, adventure activities, and equine therapy to help adolescents make lasting changes.
BlueFire has set the bar for wilderness therapy, offering twice as much individual and group clinical time per week as other wilderness programs.
We involve parents and other family members, keeping them connected to their teen via letters, phone calls, video calls and a multi-day family workshop. Our treatment is client-directed rather than level-based This means that we help our clients gain an understanding of their treatment goals rather than presenting them with externally based predetermined levels.
Therapists work with our clients in a variety of settings including the basecamps, equine therapy, and adventure outings. This frequency and variety is critical as we work with teens in the moment rather than relying on asking them to recall situations and emotions after the fact.
Adventures teach teens the value of engaging in healthy activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, and horseback riding. We want them to experience positive moments, gain confidence, broaden their perspectives, and strengthen their core beliefs.
