How Can Wilderness Therapy Help Your Arizona Teen?
At BlueFire Wilderness Therapy troubled teens from Arizona ages 11-17 go through a real journey of self-discovery leading to long-term improvement in any emotional or behavioral problems they may be experiencing. The varying terrains of Southern Idaho are used as an integral part of the therapy process, allowing our clients to reconnect with the world around them and their true selves. Coupled with simultaneous evidence based therapies – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to name just a few – administered by top professionals, BlueFire leads the way in wilderness therapy programs.
During their time at BlueFire, Arizona teens can expect to take part in a variety of engaging adventure therapies:
- Rock Climbing
- Canoe and Kayaking
- Mountain Biking
- Paddle Boarding
- Horse Riding
Taking part in wilderness therapy activities, which are often unfamiliar to the client, leads to a newfound sense of accomplishment and increasing self-confidence in their own abilities. Retreat can be found in the yurts of base-camp where a home away from home is created during the teens stay at the program. Safety is at the utmost importance at BlueFire Wilderness Therapy, with highly trained staff monitoring all activities.

Wilderness Therapy Arizona Families Can Trust
BlueFire Wilderness Therapy is a leader in the field of programs for troubled teens from Arizona. Based in the magnificent surroundings of Southern Idaho, clients from Arizona leave our program after learning new skills and experiencing new challenges after immersing themselves in wilderness therapy. At BlueFire, the focus is placed on creating long-term and sustainable solutions to any mental health issues your child faces. These solutions will continue long after they have left the wilderness therapy program.
At BlueFire rather than simply isolating symptoms of a problem, for instance bad behaviors and negative emotional habits, the root cause itself will be identified. Through wilderness therapy Arizona teens are removed from their natural environment and any negative stimulus that they are used to. This allows them to focus on building up their self-confidence and strengthening their sense of self. This removal will of course be temporary so at BlueFire the Family Systems Theory is followed keeping loved ones involved every step of the way through cutting edge technology. By recognizing the vital importance of the entire family unit the lessons learnt at the program stand a much stronger chance of permanence once the troubled teen has returned home.
