Wilderness Therapy that Helps Young Adults from South Dakota Thrive

Many South Dakota young people that find themselves in survival mode end up seeking therapeutic treatment. Regardless of what brought them to this point - poor choices or the ability to motivate themselves - it can be a difficult cycle to stop.

Wilderness therapy specifically for South Dakota young adults can help stop this cycle. By taking away the chance to manipulate, isolate, or use other maladaptive coping strategies, young people are able to see themselves and their areas of growth more clearly. This helps promote self-awareness, understanding, and compassion, which opens the door to new ways of being. The goal of wilderness therapy is to shift from having young adults survive and instead begin to thrive.

BlueFire Pulsar is a wilderness therapy program that wants to help young adults thrive. Based in Idaho, BlueFire Pulsar supports young adults from South Dakota as they heal, grow, and gain the skills they need to succeed in the future.


Wilderness Therapy Unlocks Potential For South Dakota Young Adults


With a strong Adventure Therapy program, BlueFire Pulsar helps young adults from South Dakota step out of their comfort zone and into growth and potential. Our adventure activities offer the appropriate amount of challenge so that students can also practice communication and coping skills while having fun. Activities are intentionally selected and designed by the clinical team to be impactful and growth-oriented. Therapists and guides are active participants with students to model safety and also offer in-the-moment support and encouragement.

With these experiences, the young people at BlueFire Pulsar find success in ways they never dreamed were possible. They were able to navigate the rapids, scale the wall, and hike the mountain. This changes the way they view themselves, no longer sitting on the sidelines of their life, they are now the hero of their own story.
