BlueFire Wilderness Therapy is located in Idaho, not Alaska. However, we help families from all over the country find success.

During their time at BlueFires wilderness therapy programs, they participate in multiple activities including camping, hiking and rock climbing. Teens from Alaska learn new insight on personal strengths, issues, and goals through their experience in a new environment and participation in adventure activities and therapies.

Some of the evidence based therapies students gain from our expert staff and wilderness therapy programs include:

The combination of these therapies along with adventure activities helps teens develop skills needed to transition back into the real world. Cooking, fire building, and orienteering are just a few of the skills that teens learn during their experience at BlueFire.

These skills not only lead to them repairing a relationship with themselves, but also others around them. As they achieve and accomplish the many challenges wilderness therapy programs have to offer, teens develop new ways of thinking, realize their full potential, and increase self-confidence.

Resources

NATSAP: The National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs serves as a resource for individuals in need of information about programs and the expectations of quality practices. Members of their association are expected to maintain top of the line therapeutic practices and services to maintain a membership. Their mission is to help promote healthy children through the use of advanced schools and programs.
How Wilderness Therapy Works: An Examination of the Wilderness Therapy Process to treat Adolescents with Behavioral Problems and Addictions: Within this paper, Dr. Keith Russell discusses the four leading wilderness therapy programs that emphasize a family systems approach. Similar to BlueFire’s approach, these programs incorporate the family into therapy and place a high importance on family relationships, rather than disconnecting the teen from the family unit completely. Dr. Russell found that through the combination of a challenging environment found in wilderness therapy with family systems, teens develop a more permanent, strengthened sense of self and emotional development.
