Finding Help with Wilderness Therapy Programs for Troubled Utah Teens

Wilderness Therapy programs for troubled teens from Utah combine the use of nature with traditional therapeutic approaches. Therapies such as Equine therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy are just a few of the techniques BlueFire Wilderness uses to help Utah teens ages 11 to 17. Through these methods, teens and families rebuild their relationships, gain self-confidence, and develop coping skills to help them handle personal issues after transitioning out of the program.

BlueFire Wilderness Therapy is not located in Utah, however, we help teens from all over the country achieve success.

It is not uncommon for teens to have difficulty initially adjusting to a lifestyle away from home and the removal of their current peers and habits when entering a therapeutic wilderness program. Teens learn to adjust and develop healthier lifestyles through supportive peer groups and staff, adventure experiences, and inspiring natural surroundings.

Many teens from Utah build lifelong friendships from the bond they develop with their peer groups. By sharing their struggles with emotional and behavioral problems, students learn to reconnect with themselves, others, and their surroundings.

BlueFire Wilderness offers a variety of different adventure activities to students. Some of the adventure therapy activities Utah students can expect are:

  • Biking
  • Horseback Riding
  • Rock Climbing
  • Hiking
  • Camping
  • Kayaking

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.
