Although we would like to be, we are not the best treatment centre for everyone. We operate our centre with respect for our clients as our first priority, and from that place of respect, we help YOU to hold yourself accountable in making good decisions and keeping healthy boundaries. We believe that we are the best treatment centre for people who do want to create positive change in their lives. We are not the best centre for people who do not want to grow and to change. We are not a 12 step treatment centre and are not limited by this approach to primary treatment. However, we see great value in attending 12 step meetings and working the steps. We attend four 12 step meetings per week. We are a small centre with 28 beds including our primary and detox programs. Time and time again, our clients tell us there is no other place like the Ranch, that we are the best. They tell us that our 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 arrived, they knew this was the right place for them.
Here, at Top of the World Ranch Treatment Centre, we can help you find what you are looking for, what you know that you need. We can do this with much more ease than any other centre. Why? The ranch itself facilitates positive change in a way that a more constricted, large or urban treatment centre simply cannot. How do we know this? We know this because we alcoholics and addicts have a void deep within us that we are trying to fill. It is a vacuum and it will be filled. Unfortunately we try to do this with alcohol, with drugs, with gambling, with sex, with food, with anything thing that allows us to “NOT BE HERE”, and to change how we feel, sometimes until we cannot feel at all. Fortunately, Top of the World Ranch Treatment Centre helps to fill this void and to 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.” We know that we must be present to change and to grow.
In the end we are trying to end the struggle, to gain serenity, to be at peace, with ourselves, with others, with life. It is very helpful to this end, to spend time in our healing place. Nature is the Great Healer and the ranch offers Natures best.
Is there other information that can help me make this decision? Yes, if you need more information to make your decision please read on. However, the best thing to do is give us a call, get a feel for yourself of who we are and are we right for you. Ask questions, trust your gut. 1-888-996-6306

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 is the humility to trust my spiritual values and the courage to attempt to discover my true purpose, and for that I am eternally grateful.
