Blue Fire was a leap of faith and turned out to be a wonderful choice for our 17 year old son. They guided him to become more open, talk things through and really come in touch with his feelings, actions and take accountability for himself. They also helped guide parents through a book and Family Spark experience to connect as a family to better understand each person’s part in the drama triangle.
Our son went to Blue Fire depressed and had no self confidence. He left with leadership skills he never knew he had. It was a difficult journey but it changed him in a good way. We are thankful for his wonderful therapist and staff.
One of the scariest decisions I have ever made as a parent and yet one of the best. After months of research, I found Bluefire, and from the minute I spoke to Don on the phone, I knew we had found our place. All the staff at Bluefire was terrific. Adam, Charlotte, Shannon, and our dear Lindsay. Momma B, Odessa, Jodi, Charles, Cowboy Jonny, and Ameda. The list can go on and on. Every person there was well-trained, empathetic, supportive, and honest. I watched them get to know my child and connect with her in ways I never saw anyone do. My daughter adores her Bluefire family, and I am sure their 13 weeks with her will not be the last they hear of her. She misses them profoundly and regularly uses the tools they taught her. I can’t thank them enough.
Incredible program. Incredible staff. Most difficult decision we have ever made. Most important decision we have ever made. Best decision we have ever made.
Life changing experience for our 14 y/o daughter. She said, “Bluefire was the hardest thing I have ever accomplished, I hated it, yet it was the best thing for me.”. Great therapists and caring staff.
After years of being under-resourced in both academic and medical settings, our son experienced BlueFire Embers program where he gained the skills, resources and self confidence to take back control of his life. The focus on family therapy and reunification was transformational. We cannot say enough great things about BlueFire.
Our son had the best experience in the young adult program. Best of the best therapist and guides. 100% recommended.
Bluefire was nothing short of a miracle for our son. Our son was in a very dark and dangerous place. We had exhausted every effort to help him. His Bluefire therapists and the staff were wonderful, compassionate, dedicated, insightful and extremely talented. My son saw what his life was, what it could be and made the choice to live a life of passion, joy and love. He was a new person when he left. He is now alive, emotionally very healthy, constantly improving and my son and his parents are enjoying each other more than we ever have. It is not possible to thank Bluefire enough for what they did for my son.
I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for everything, I really got my life turned around there and I’m doing amazing right now! I have a job as a snowboard instructor, I just finished my basketball season and was named defensive player of the year. I started driving with my permit, *LEGALLY* and I’ve really fixed a lot up. Blue fire was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, and it was terrible when I did it. But now I see why it was so hard, not only did it help me be safe, but I’ve noticed that now when my friends are struggling in a bunch of different areas I’m not, AT ALL, and I owe you for that. That success is is every area too, conditioning for sports is nothing because of the hiking, school is easier to get stuff in, I have a girlfriend and am in a healthy relationship! Everything is going amazing right now and I know that if it wasn’t for blue fire I wouldn’t be where I am right now. I mean for god sakes I might have been dead or in jail if not for blue fire. So thank you for everything. I just wanted to check in and tell you how I was doing. Hope all is well.
We all still have our moments but I can say with 100% certainty that BlueFire changed all our lives for the better.
