Reid Treadaway, Co-founder and Admissions Director of BlueFire Wilderness Therapy, started working in the wilderness therapy field in 1996 at the Ascent Program, in Idaho, as a field guide.  After several years he moved onto being a admissions person and eventually would move to North Carolina in 2001 to become admissions director for SUWS of the Carolina.  After a few years in North Carolina he decided to return back to Idaho and in 2014 he would join with others to start BlueFire Wilderness Therapy.  

Listen to this interesting story on why Reid went on to starting a wilderness program after working in the field for almost 20 years.
