BlueFire Wilderness Therapy helps troubled adolescents from Connecticut and elsewhere ages 11-17. In small groups they may find a more positive and understanding peer group than those left behind at home, increasing emotional development and empathy. The entire family is involved in the process at BlueFire to ensure longevity of treatment once the client has returned home. While immersed in wilderness therapy, clients will find themselves constantly challenged in new and exciting ways, the demands of these challenges encouraging them to be more present in the moment and less reliant on continuous stimulation found in a technologically saturated day at home.
Wilderness Therapy Helps Connecticut Families Heal
BlueFire Wilderness Therapy program combines a family focused therapeutic model with engaging outdoor adventures to allow troubled teens to realize their full potential. Initially teens may struggle with the removal of the unhealthy and continuous stimulus found in excessive video gaming, and use of social media, but through wilderness therapy they will find a new, supportive peer group who share their struggles with emotional and behavioral problems and learn to reconnect with their environment.
During their time at BlueFire clients will acquire back-to-basic skills like orienteering and fire building. These new skills not only breed increased self-confidence but also teach important lessons about the unnatural state of alienation teens may be experiencing; no one exists successfully in isolation. Connecting with and utilizing the stunning environments of Southern Idaho will inherently lead towards the rejoining and repairing the family unit itself. The focus on the connectedness of the entire family unit is great at BlueFire to ensure the continuation of positive progress for clients once they have left the wilderness therapy program
At BlueFire highly trained staff work with small groups of troubled teens to ensure a tailor-made approach to their personal needs and safety of the clients while they undertake exciting new adventures like canoeing, horse riding and rock climbing.
