Alcoholics and addicts have a void deep within, and we try to fill this void with alcohol, with drugs, with gambling, with sex, with food, with anything that allows us to change how we feel until we cannot feel at all.
Fortunately, Top of the World Ranch Treatment Centre helps fill this void
and fill it in abundance.
Welcome to Top of the World Ranch Recovery Centre in Fort Steele, B.C.
We understand that the disease of addiction has affected you emotionally, socially, physically, spiritually, and mentally. Our counselling and programming is designed around treating all of these aspects of who you are, helping you to understand what got you to where you are, and how to move forward with a clean, sober, healthy life.
Along with your addiction, you may be experiencing chronic depression, anxiety, shame, and fear. You may have had adverse experiences and trauma in your life, which tangles the web of addiction further. We recognize and understand all these aspects of facing addiction and finding recovery, and our strong team of clinicians has a variety of expertise to help with your unique situation. Every single person here at the ranch – even those who prepare the food, maintain the facility, and do the paperwork – care first and foremost about you and your recovery. Many of us have been in a situation like yours. All of us care.
In addition to personalized individual therapy, group therapy, continuing care coordination, psych-educational learning opportunities and the support of our whole staff, you’ll also experience an array of opportunity to heal in holistic ways. There’s yoga, tai chi, mindfulness, walking or hiking the trails, visiting with the horses, viewing the mountain peaks, fishing in our lakes, canoeing, kayaking, biking, art and music. All of our physical activities are offered at your personal level of ability and comfort.
Every aspect of our treatment program is built on best practice (“what is proven to work”), and respect for our clients. Please know that if you need an “in your face” treatment centre that uses aversion therapy, then we are not the best choice for you, as we do not employ these aggressive methods. We are a great choice if you are ready to make positive change in your life. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
What is most important right now? If the answer is facing your addiction and finding the support you need to create positive change, we will walk this path with you.
As a former high-end guest ranch, our facilities are top notch and, in unison with the surrounding 600 acres natural beauty, we offer first-rate accommodations, healthy and incredible food, and world-class outdoor activities.
We operate our centre with respect and compassion for our clients as our first priority. We use an individualized case management process for each client, and we help you make good decisions, keep healthy boundaries and stay accountable.
Although not inexpensive, we offer great value and an exceptional treatment experience. To put it simply, we charge what we have to, to offer what we do and to be what we are. For all of us at Top of the World, this is a labour of love.
