Wilderness Therapy Rhode Island Teens Find Success With

At BlueFire Wilderness Therapy, Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island

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.
