Wilderness Therapy Programs for Troubled Teens Help Ohio Families Heal

At BlueFire Wilderness, students experience a home away from home setting where they feel nurtured and supported. As a parent, we understand how difficult this decision can be which is why we combine family focused therapy with our therapeutic approach. We strive to make this the best experience for both families and their teens. Wilderness Therapy Programs Ohio

Although BlueFire’s wilderness therapy programs are not located in Ohio, we have helped various families from around the country find lasting change and success.

Located in Southern Idaho, teens from Ohio gain a newfound sense of accomplishment and self-confidence in their own strengths and abilities. Safety is extremely important to BlueFire Wilderness, which is why we use the best practices and hire highly trained staff. As a member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP), families can feel confident that they are receiving the best care possible.

During their experience at our wilderness therapy programs, teens let go of old habits through adventure activities like rock climbing, camping and hiking. During their time at our program they gradually let go of their current attachments to technology, negative peer influences, and behaviors. Students learn back-to-basic skills that help teach important lessons while on adventure activities.

Wilderness Therapy Programs for Troubled Teens from Ohio

Ohio students who attend BlueFire Wilderness receive a custom-made treatment plan for their individual needs. BlueFire Wilderness therapy programs don’t focus on the surface problems. What makes our program unique is our effort to find the root cause of each individual child’s challenges. Wilderness Therapy Programs Ohio

BlueFire Wilderness is located in Idaho, not Ohio. Although some parents may be hesitant to send their child away from home, distance allows for the removal of your teen from the environment which may have influenced their destructive behavioral or emotional patterns in the past.

Every child is different, from their struggles to the environment they come from. The therapeutic approach one troubled teen will need can be completely different from what another needs. Due to this, BlueFire applies a strong emphasis on working with families to identify the best treatment plan for their child.

BlueFire’s wilderness therapy programs offer teens a small group approach, allowing them to develop stronger relationships with staff and peers. These relationships offer a more positive journey towards success than those they had at home. During their time surrounded by nature, adolescents will experience a fun, yet challenging environment that teaches them how to face challenges on their own. Through these experiences, teens learn how to be responsible for themselves, their behaviors, and learn respect.
