At BlueFire Wilderness Therapy, Oklahoma teens receive a tailor made treatment plan based on their specific needs. No two troubled teens are identical, nor are the environments they have come to a wilderness therapy program from. This is why at BlueFire the client is in charge of what they want to get out of their time with us. Arbitrary and excessive restriction at other programs may lead to teens merely mimicking what they believe is desired of them rather than real long term change that is restorative to the family unit.  Wilderness Therapy Oklahoma

Oklahoma teens struggling with a variety of disorders and mental health problems can find real value in wilderness therapy. Learning back-to-basics skills without the distractions of modern technology, and being surrounded by the beauty of Southern Idaho can increase the confidence of troubled teens as they face new challenges and realize what they are truly capable of.
