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

Wilderness Therapy Helps Maine 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.
