What is Wilderness Therapy For Young Adults in Alabama?

Wilderness therapy helps young adults that need to disconnect from the harmful patterns they’ve become entrenched in, to find growth and healing in a short-term outdoor experience. For young men and women ages 18-28 that are struggling to find their direction in life, BlueFire Pulsar’s wilderness therapy program could be the answer they are looking for. Located in southern Idaho, BlueFire Pulsar works with Alabama young adults to help them rediscover their inner wisdom, motivation, and drive.

Without the distractions of modern society, the young adults in our wilderness program can look within for the answers, purpose, and healing they need. The wilderness is a therapeutic setting like none other: nature acts as a mirror and can help us see things more clearly. With a healthy and supportive group of peers, the young adults share encouragement. They work as a team to help one another and the whole group grow, learn, and thrive. The group comes together to overcome small and big challenges, and this fosters a sense of unity and community.
