Wilderness Therapy Arkansas Families Can Trust

BlueFire Wilderness Therapy is a leader in the field of programs for troubled teens from Arkansas. Based in the magnificent surroundings of Southern Idaho, clients from Arkansas 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. Wilderness Therapy Arkansas

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 Arkansas 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.

Each child’s emotional and behavioral issues are different, to discuss further how BlueFire Wilderness Therapy can assist your family’s needs call 1(844) 413-1999 today!

How Wilderness Therapy Works: An Examination of the Wilderness Therapy Process to treat Adolescents with Behavioral Problems and Addictions : A paper written by Dr. Keith Russell about four of the leading wilderness therapy programs that utilize, as BlueFire does, the family systems approach. This approach places heavy emphasis on the family unit itself, rather than isolating the troubled teen. Russell summarizes in this paper that the combination of this method with the new challenges faced by the young person during their stay at a program, led to a newly strengthened sense of self and emotional development.
