What is Wilderness Therapy For Young Adults in Arkansas?

Wilderness therapy for young adults allows young men and women the chance to disconnect from negative or toxic behaviors, giving them the opportunity to grow and heal in a short but powerful outdoor experience. For young people ages 18-28 that are having difficulty successfully shifting into young adulthood, BlueFire Pulsar is a wilderness therapy program that can help. Based in southern Idaho, BlueFire Pulsar is passionate about helping young adults from Arkansas that need help taking control of their lives.

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 cooperatively to build one another up because everyone recognizes they are each on their own journey. 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 Arkansas?



By eliminating day-to-day distractions, young adults have the opportunity to focus on what they really need to: themselves and their future. The more students are able to meet with experienced clinicians, the more progress they make - which is why BlueFire Pulsar has our talented therapists in the field four days every week. This, coupled with the setting, positive peer culture, and adventure therapy opportunities, gives young adults equal parts reflection and challenge, contemplation and growth. The outcome is transformational: better self-esteem and communication skills, increased confidence, and more. Wilderness therapy provides a catalyst for change and movement. When young adults are feeling stuck, this is exactly what they need.

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


Created specifically for young men and women ages 18-28, BlueFire Pulsar’s wilderness therapy program understands the evolving needs of the young adult population. Located in southern Idaho, BlueFire Pulsar serves young women and men from Arkansas that need time to hit reset and focus on themselves. By participating in our Adventure Therapy programming, young adults are able to improve their self confidence and self esteem while also learning new skills and developing new hobbies.

BlueFire Pulsar takes a whole-person approach to care, and we believe that each student is more than the sum of 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. Using this, we create a program that meets the specific needs of every student. And this is why we blend transitional living with the other parts of our program.

Within our wilderness therapy program, students participate in fun adventure therapy programming which includes activities like:

- Mountain biking.

- Skiing and snowboarding.

- Rock climbing.
