Top of the World Ranch Treatment Centre

At Top of the World Ranch Treatment Centre, we understand the confusion, the fear, of “why do I keep doing this?” and “why can’t I stop?”

We understand the need to “control it this time” — and the inevitable failure to do so.

At Top of the World Ranch Treatment Centre, we understand and we can help. The treatment we offer is about gaining a strong foothold in sobriety. It is about getting your life back; it is about creating a new life for yourself, a life that’s much better, much healthier than the one you have now. It is about becoming the person you can be, the person you really are, the person who is currently trapped under your addiction.

  • Coming to Top of the World saved my life. I had tried various meetings, a psychiatrist, took medications and nothing helped. To me, my drinking was a rash and I needed to find the cause of the rash and not just keep applying Calamine lotion. Top of the World did that. It helped me identify the hole in my soul and then to heal it. The counsellors are caring and knowledgeable and the support staff are just that, very supportive. You could not design a more beautiful location or facility; you can truly find your spirituality here.

  • Happy anniversary to us! One year since we left our son in your care. And what an amazing year it has been. We could not be prouder of our son! His desire to take the things you taught him and expand on them… he is truly the person now that I always knew he was. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for him and our family. I continue to be thankful every day that such beautiful people, and such a beautiful place, exists, and that we found it!

  • This has been a life-changing experience. I feel like myself and I feel strong and now have the knowledge and the tools necessary to stay clean and sober, but more importantly to live a happy, healthy, growing life. The staff are absolutely amazing and wonderful. Thank you for the whole person approach to my healing. Just like at our check in/check out, I feel physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually whole.


Our Founder’s Story

“After many years of fighting tooth and nail, years of denial, trying to get and stay sober on my own, trying to convince myself that it would be different this time, I was given a moment of clarity to see myself as I truly was. I saw the reality of my addiction, I saw the damage that I was causing, I suddenly understood that the problems I drank about were not outside me — the problem was me — and that the change that was needed had to be me.

I was floored, I was beaten. And so, as to not leave my family the sad legacy of a dead alcoholic, I sought treatment. When I got on the plane to go, I had no real hope. I felt I could not be happy if I could not drink and knew that I could not be happy if I did. I felt damned. My life was in chaos and made no sense to me. I could not understand how this could have happened.

My family and I had left the ranch twice, never to return, but kept coming back. Something gnawed at me that this ranch had purpose and meaning that was yet unfulfilled.
