Wilderness Therapy Helps Hawaii 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.

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.
