Blue Fire Wilderness Therapy is a comprehensive and licensed adventure basedintervention for teens who are struggling in their current situations. We provide a state-of-the-art and unprecedented treatment approach by incorporating a multidisciplinary treatment team to participate in the treatment planning and implementation for every child and family. We utilize an ideal balance of wilderness expeditions, high-adventure activities, equine therapy, individual and group therapy, academic work, service projects, and family connections, all designed to deliver treatment opportunities and life-skills attainment. We have our therapists in our groups at least four days a week working with our clients to build a clinical relationship in group, individual, family and equine therapy. The therapists work closely with the field staff on daily interventions to build self-esteem, self-reliance and improve communication skills in our clients. We incorporate a four day in the field family workshop that strives to improve family trust, relationships and communication.
