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

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

Wilderness Therapy Montana Families Can Trust

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

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 Montana 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!

Aacap.org: The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is entirely focused on promoting the mental well being of young people. They have a useful section on finding physicians near to you and many Facts for Families€™ guides; these are viewable by specific topics relating to the needs of your child and family.
Shifts in Attachment Relationships: A Study of Adolescents in Wilderness Therapy: A research paper written by Joanna E. Bettmann in which there were ninety-six participants who attended wilderness therapy programs. The adolescents were evaluated before and after the attendance of their treatment on their relationships with both parents and peers. By the end of the program she found that some of the participants€™ anger levels had decreased and correspondingly their emotional connection to their parents had increased. Her findings raise the question that programs within which the entire family unit is included may have the best chance of improved attachment relationships; at BlueFire this is of course a top priority.
