Our approach to treating addiction

Although we focus mostly on chemical addictions (alcohol and drugs), our program also addresses behavioral addictions such as gambling, sex and romance addiction, and other dependencies that often accompany the chemical addictions.

We treat concurrent mental disorders that frequently accompany addiction, such as depression, anxiety, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and other mental illnesses.

With each new client, we do a complete assessment, then create an individualized program of recovery.

Here are some of the reasons treatment at Top of the World Ranch is so effective:

Individualized treatment that adapts to meet a client’s changing needs

  • Our staff are highly qualified, uniquely empathetic, intuitive, supportive and here for the right reasons.
  • Each client is assigned a primary counsellor with whom they create their addictions treatment program. A client may also meet with other counsellors to benefit from the unique expertise held by each of our clinicians.
  • We offer two weekly one to one counselling sessions per client with a qualified addictions counsellor.
  • We connect our clients with support systems in their home communities. We arrange and pre-pay for two counselling sessions for each client upon return home with a qualified addictions counsellor. We have relationships with highly successful supportive organizations and individuals in your area. This will not be left to chance.
  • In addition, after returning home, each client will continue to connect with our Top of the World Ranch continuing care coordinators.
  • At graduation, each client becomes a member of our interactive, highly supportive alumni website with support available from other alumni.

For some of our clients, there is great value in attending 12-step meetings and working the steps; however, we are not limited by this treatment approach. We do offer the 12-step program as one very valuable pathway for recovery.

Holistic approach that supports all aspects of your recovery

  • We offer highly impactful outdoor and indoor experiential programming.
  • We offer non-mandatory First Nations led sweat lodge & sharing circle experiences.
  • We offer non-riding equine therapy programming with a professional equine therapy specialist.
  • We offer holistic therapies such as Mindfulness, Yoga & Tai Chi.
  • We have many available extra-therapeutic activities, such as hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and other outdoor experiences that enhance our clients’ recovery experience. We also have a fully equipped gym and sauna.
  • We employ world class Chefs and offer corresponding healthy, delicious, enriching cuisine.

It is proven that changing the environment, and in particular, immersing oneself into nature, makes more rapid, positive change possible. No treatment centre has more to offer in this regard than Top of the World Ranch.
