Wilderness Therapy Can Help Your Ohio Teen 

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

Although our wilderness therapy program does not take place in Ohio, we help teens from all over the United States. By being removed from their natural environment within Ohio, this transition allows for Ohio 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 Ohio 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 Ohio. Call 1(844) 413-1399 today to find out how BlueFire can help get the best results for your family!

Why Wilderness? How Therapeutic Outdoor Programs Help Troubled Teens: Hugh C. McBride€™s article offers a brief history of wilderness therapy programs and a three-step outline of how they operate. He highlights that time free from the stimulation-intensive world€™ we live in today plays a huge part in the success of the therapy.
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.
