During wilderness therapy, Oregon teens build important life skills and begin to take steps towards positive change. Wilderness therapy for Oregon families utilize evidence-based techniques to help struggling teens heal.

At BlueFire Wilderness Therapy, Oregon 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 Oregon
