Although we would like to be, we are not the best treatment centre for everyone. If you do not want to be in treatment, we are not the best place for you.
But if you are ready to take your best life back and create positive change, you will not find a better treatment centre.
Time and time again, our clients tell us that there is nothing else like the Ranch. That our remarkable staff, the beauty of our location, the land, the horses, the accommodations, the food, and our program are without peer. They tell us that as soon as they got here, they knew that this was the right place for them. Our clients often express deep gratitude to us, but the fact is, we are even more grateful to them.
Here, at Top of the World Ranch Treatment Centre, we can help you find what you are looking for, what you know you need.
We facilitate positive change in a way that constricted urban treatment centres simply cannot. We also understand. We know that you have a void deep within they are trying to fill. It is a vacuum and it will be filled. Unfortunately, you have tried to do this with alcohol, with drugs, with gambling, with sex, with food, with anything thing that allows you to “NOT BE HERE,” and to change how you feel until you cannot feel at all.
Top of the World Ranch Treatment Centre helps fill this void and fill it in abundance. Our environment, our program, the beauty of this ranch and its surroundings lifts your spirit, and expands your soul and allows you to be “HERE.”
In the end, we are all trying to end the struggle, to gain serenity, to be at peace, with ourselves, with others, with life. Nature is an unparalleled healer, and the Ranch offers nature’s best. Combined with a truly amazing staff and program, and you will know Top of the World Ranch is exactly where you need to be.
Tired of the stress, of the chaos, of trying to hold it together, of trying to control it again and again… and failing. Tired of not being the person you can be, and (although you may not believe it) the person you really are — your authentic self.
At who you’ve become in your addiction. You find yourself feeling regretful for what you have done, to your family, to others when you are drinking alcohol, when you are abusing drugs, when you are wasting your time, wasting your money, wasting away, wasting your life.
And you are angry at others, but mostly at yourself.
By trying to keep all together; by not letting others in to see the addicted you. You know life is not supposed to be this way. You are sometimes amazed you have become what you are and that you are in the situation in which you find yourself.
Of the fear that you constantly live in. Of running into someone. Of picking up the phone. Of being found out. Of dying. You know that you cannot go on like this. Something has to give and when it does, it will not be good.
You cannot see how you can be happy if you cannot drink, if you cannot use. You know that you cannot be happy if you do. Your life seems to be hanging on by a thread and you are falling apart at the seams.
Something in you knows, something hidden away under the layers of addiction, resentment, fear, anger, frustration and lack of control knows that life can be better than this, it HAS to be better than this — but how?
Mark Sadler, Executive Director
There are no easy answers and there are no miracle cures. But what I believe Top of the World Ranch provides above all else is the opportunity to look deep inside ones self and to begin to understand the motivations that drive us to such insanely destructive behaviors. The Journey towards sustainable recovery begins with an inner journey and whilst I know that I have benefited greatly from the opportunity to understand my addiction much more clearly from scientific and psychological perspectives, the greatest gift the ranch has given me are the humility to trust my spiritual values and the courage to attempt to discover my true purpose, and for that I am eternally grateful.
