At the Ranch, clients experience a holistic program that addresses their social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental needs through the recovery process.

Each client has a skilled individual counsellor, a continuing care coordinator, an individualized program, and a full cadre of caring professionals dedicated to their wellness.


Welcome to Top of the World Ranch Recovery Centre, in Fort Steele, BC.

Our counsellors provide individual therapy sessions with each of our clients, and also offer group therapy and psych-educational learning oppportunities.

We carefully match clients with counsellors who have skill and experience most likely to be of help to each client.  From there, an individualized treatment plan is created.  Generally, each client will have two hour-long counselling sessions per week.  In addition, each client has his or her own continuing care coordinator with whom they meet weekly, thus the plan for sobriety after leaving the Ranch starts right away.  Small group therapy is also an important aspect of treatment at the Ranch.

Our psych-education seminars cover a wide variety of topics that offer insight into addiction and its effects on the individual and the family, self-care techniques, and especially relapse prevention strategies. Our programming also includes a variety of holistic experiential activities that greatly aid in recovery, such as yoga, mindfulness, 12-step trail, a meditation labyrinth, equine therapy, art and music, and of course lakes, trails, and vistas that are soul-stirring in their own way.

Our highly acclaimed four-day Family Program is offered every six weeks and based on the most recent knowledge in the field of addiction. This Family Program is for all individuals suffering as a result of addiction. Our program will help you to deal with the stresses, lapses in trust and the hurt that accompanies addictions. These four days are designed to begin important conversations between you and your loved one, recovering some of what has been lost, to offer hope and improvement in coping and communication skills and to plant the seed of hope for you and your loved ones.

We encourage clients to try on self-care behaviors such as physical activity consistent with each client’s comfort level, nature walks and meditation.
