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

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 Missouri 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!

Wilderness Therapy Can Help Your Missouri Teen 

BlueFire Wilderness Therapy is a leading residential program for troubled teens from Missouri. 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 Missouri between the ages of 11-17 learn new skills and new ways of understanding any emotional and behavioral problems they face. Wilderness Therapy Missouri

Although our wilderness therapy program does not take place in Missouri, we help teens from all over the United States. By being removed from their natural environment within Missouri, this transition allows for Missouri 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 Missouri 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 Missouri. Call 1(844) 413-1999 today to find out how BlueFire can help get the best results for your family!
