What is Wilderness Therapy For Young Adults in Connecticut?

Young adults from Connecticut 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 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 Connecticut that need help taking control of their lives.

Free from the distractions of modern life, young adults in a wilderness program are able to look inward and gain an understanding of their past, present, and future. The great outdoors offers the ideal therapeutic backdrop: nature reflects back our actions and thoughts in a way few other things can. With a healthy and supportive group of peers, the young adults share encouragement. They work together to help each other and the group learn, grow, and succeed. The group conquers challenges together and recognizes the unique strengths that each individual has.

How Does Wilderness Therapy Work For Young Adults From Connecticut?



By removing everyday distractions, young people can take the time they need to focus on what they need to succeed in life. 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. Combined with our wilderness setting, healthy peer culture, and adventure therapy programming, this offers young adults a unique opportunity to reflect, grow, and heal. The outcome is transformational: better self-esteem and communication skills, increased confidence, and more. Wilderness therapy acts as the impetus for big change and growth. When young adults are feeling stuck, this is exactly what they need.

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. Located in southern Idaho, BlueFire Pulsar serves young women and men from Connecticut 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.

At BlueFire PulsaR, we believe that each young adult is an individual and should be treated as a whole person - not just their presenting issues. That’s why we take a holistic approach with our multidisciplinary treatment team (Primary Therapist, Psychologist, Recreation Therapist, Equine Specialist, Family Therapist, Physician/RN) for each client. This results in a highly individualized treatment plan for every young adult and family.

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. We use a thorough assessment that looks at each client’s strengths and areas of improvement to begin this process. This allows us to put together programming that meets the specific needs of each student. And this is why we blend transitional living with the other parts of our program.
