There are not many decisions that my wife and I made sending our kid to blue fire. took me 9 months to come to terms that wilderness was the right decision for us. Our kids experience at blue fire was amazing. He is now back in school and is going to finish as a senior in the spring of next year. This accomplishment would not be possible without blue fire wilderness that got our kid back into a space with more coping skills than most adults I know. 50 more than me for sure.
It helped me and my family grow mentally and helped fix problems and saved a family member’s life.
This was an excellent experience for our 13-year-old and one of our best–if hardest–parenting decisions. The caring staff gave him–and-us–a lot of tools which have greatly improved his mental health and the functioning of our family.
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.
