At BlueFire Wilderness Therapy, Kansas teens receive a tailor made treatment plan based on their specific needs. No two troubled teens are identical, nor are the environments they have come to a wilderness therapy program from. This is why at BlueFire the client is in charge of what they want to get out of their time with us. Arbitrary and excessive restriction at other programs may lead to teens merely mimicking what they believe is desired of them rather than real long term change that is restorative to the family unit.  Wilderness Therapy Kansas

Kansas teens struggling with a variety of disorders and mental health problems can find real value in wilderness therapy. Learning back-to-basics skills without the distractions of modern technology, and being surrounded by the beauty of Southern Idaho can increase the confidence of troubled teens as they face new challenges and realize what they are truly capable of.

Wilderness Therapy Can Help Your Kansas Teen 

BlueFire Wilderness Therapy is a leading residential program for troubled teens from Kansas. The entire family is extensively involved to ensure the greatest possible outcomes for our clients after they have returned home. Using a combination of evidence based therapies and adventure therapy struggling teens from Kansas between the ages of 11-17 learn new skills and new ways of understanding any emotional and behavioral problems they face. Wilderness Therapy Kansas

Although our wilderness therapy program does not take place in Kansas, we help teens from all over the United States. By being removed from their natural environment within Kansas, this transition allows for Kansas teens to fully realize their true capabilities. Old habits and negative peer influences will be replaced with increased self-confidence and healthier attachments.  

Through Equine Therapy, BlueFire helps Kansas teens explore the nature of the follower and leader dynamic. There is a complementary relationship between horse and rider, allowing clients to witness a mirroring€™ of their own emotions in the behavior of the horse, teaching teens to place more emphasis on types of non-verbal communication. Equine Therapy is an integral part of what makes BlueFire such a successful wilderness therapy program as it works to increase levels of empathy and compassion in our clients.

BlueFire takes a tailor-made approach with each client, taking into account the specific needs of every family from Kansas. Call 1(844) 413-1999 today to find out how BlueFire can help get the best results for your family!
