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

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

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.
