The Ranch’s property and backcountry licence extends to over 28,000+ acres. With world-class Canadian Rocky Mountain scenery and virtually endless options for recreational activities, we can easily tailor our experiential activities to meet any group wherever they are at physically. Typical Fortification activities can range from simply circling up around a campfire in a scenic drive-to location, to soaking in natural mountain hot springs, to visiting a local pub or casino to experience and process triggers, to canoeing or kayaking, to strenuous hikes and/or rock climbing or caving.
Clients are eligible to attend Fortification Wednesdays on or after their 37th day in primary programming and every subsequent Wednesday thereafter. To be eligible for the Fortification Program, clients must be in good standing and participating to the best of their ability in regular programming.
Fortification programming is just one of the things the ranch does to address the issue of repetition and/or the cabin fever that can occur with clients entering their sixth week of treatment and beyond.
To Fortify is to strengthen — and Fortification programming paves the way for clients to strengthen their determination to stay on track with sobriety once their time at Top of the World Ranch comes to an end.
A client’s counsellor and/or the clinical team reserves the right to deny or delay participation in Fortification programming.
