For many families searching for therapeutic options, finding wilderness therapy that North Carolina families trust can be a difficult challenge. Wilderness therapy North Carolina families have seen success with doesn’t necessarily have to be in state.

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

Although our wilderness therapy program does not take place in North Carolina, we help teens from all over the United States. By being removed from their natural environment within North Carolina, this transition allows for North Carolina 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 North Carolina 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 North Carolina. 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.
