What is Wilderness Therapy For Young Adults in Arizona?

Young adults from Arizona can benefit from a wilderness therapy experience as they step away from the harmful patterns of their day-to-day lives and step into a growth-oriented opportunity of a lifetime. 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 Arizona 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 provides a therapeutic backdrop like none other: nature helps us see ourselves for who we are. With a supportive peer group, other young men and women offer feedback and positive relationships. They work together to help each other and the group learn, grow, and succeed. The group comes together to overcome small and big challenges, and this fosters a sense of unity and community.

How Does Wilderness Therapy Work For Young Adults From Arizona?



By eliminating day-to-day distractions, young adults have the opportunity to focus on what they really need to: themselves and their future. Having access to additional therapeutic support provides the greatest impact, which is one of the reasons BlueFire Pulsar has our talented clinicians in the field four days every week. This additional support combine with our adventure therapy, positive peer group, and unique wilderness setting offers an unparalleled space for young adults to heal and grow. The results are wide-ranging: better communication skills, self-esteem, self-confidence, and more. Wilderness therapy provides a catalyst for change and movement. And when young adults find themselves stuck in a rut, this is what they need to get back on track.

Find Growth and Success in Wilderness Therapy for Young Adults from Arizona


Designed with young people ages 18-28 in mind, BlueFire Pulsar is an adventure wilderness therapy program that is uniquely qualified to support the needs of those in emerging adulthood. Based in Idaho, BlueFire Pulsar is for young adults from Arizona that need time to focus on themselves while becoming more independent and empowered. The challenges in an Adventure Therapy program increase resilience and self-efficacy, while also expanding activities that students can do after they leave for leisure or fitness.

We believe that each young woman and man should be viewed as a whole person and more than just their presenting issues. So that is why we use a multidisciplinary treatment team (Psychologist, Primary Therapist, Family Therapist, Recreation Therapist, Equine Specialist, Physician/RN) for each student. This offers a very individualized course of treatment for every student.

Transition Planning is Key for Young Adults


From the beginning at BlueFire Pulsar, we are looking at what the next step toward independence will be. This begins with a detailed assessment of each student’s strengths, weaknesses, and more. This allows us to put together programming that meets the specific needs of each student. This is one of the reasons that we utilize a combination approach that includes transitional living.

Adventure Therapy Programming 


Students are able to participate in fun and engaging activities including:

- Canoeing.

- Mountain biking.

- Bouldering.

- Caving.

- Skiing and snowboarding.

- Whitewater rafting.

- Rock climbing.

With all these different activities, students are able to get out of their heads and into their bodies, which is very beneficial from a therapeutic perspective. They discover they can be successful in ways they never thought were possible!
