In December 2009 I had the extreme
pleasure of traveling diagonally across the United States from Southwest
Florida quite literally to the Top of the World Ranch Recovery in
British Columbia, Canada to assist them in building a medicine wheel on
The birthing of the medicine wheel at
Top of the World is truly one of the highlights of my life and is an
experience that I will never forget. There is a tremendous amount of
power on that land. I can't imagine that anyone would not experience
healing who would spend any amount of time there. The healing powers of
the earth and nature, especially in lands that have a concentration of
spiritual energies is something that is becoming more widely recognized
and utilized in recovery. This is great news!
“It is no accident that
give us the ability to navigate with intention, direction and momentum.”
- She Who Weaves the Web
When I arrived I was greeted by two
of the most dedicated and compassionate men that I have met in a long
time, Mark Sadler, the owner of the Top of the World Treatment Centres
and Dr. Michael Harach, who was responsible for the development of the
natural resources and sacred spaces at the Recovery Ranch. It was
actually Mike, whom I had been speaking with for weeks regarding the
possibilities for integrating Addiction Alchemy into their existing
programming and assisting them with their medicine wheel.
At Top of the World Ranch they know
that addictions are fully treatable and that addictions treatment is
most effective when delivered through a bio-psycho-social-spiritual
holistic process. Theirs is an addictions treatment program that is
formulated from beginning to end with solid scientific, evidence based
addictions treatment methods, coupled with holistic enhancements and
compassionate staff support.
“Don't reinvent the wheel, just
- Anthony J. D'Angelo
They have designed what they
understand to be the most balanced, congruent and highly effective
addictions treatment program that is available anywhere. This is presented in a
safe, very private, contained setting, in surroundings of unsurpassed natural
beauty which have been enhanced with purpose, to create a recovery experience that is
available no where else at any price, and that is designed to open ones
heart, to move ones soul toward healing, forgiveness, and
Set upon a private 600 acre ranch that is surrounded by stunning
wilderness and framed by the Rocky Mountains, the treatment experience
at the Top of the World Ranch is unlike any other. At the Ranch
you can breath deep, decompress, and find peace within nature and soon
within yourself. The privacy and natural beauty assists their clients in
discovering the tranquility and serenity that they seek in combination
with a program that teaches, listens, engages, supports and provides
clients the necessary tools to a new and sober life.
“Things do not change; we change.”
-Henry David Thoreau
They truly help their client take
the necessary steps that allows them to break free from the bonds of drug
and alcohol dependence, as well as other addictions. They offer the required tools and help
their clients gain the needed understanding to win sobriety and the
required motivation to keep sobriety, while fostering the clear understanding
that recovery is a journey that requires support and
action. They help their client rid themselves of the fear of sobriety and
discover that life sober is much better, than ever could
have been imagined.
The outdoors is breathtaking and the buildings and rooms, although in a
rustic settings are beautiful and comfortable. Guests gather for meals
and meetings in an
attractively appointed log lodge with a large, warm rock fireplace and
welcoming log cabins. Each guest has their own PRIVATE bedroom for
that very important but often difficult to come by sleep and personal
space. Top of the World Ranch Recovery also has a brand new beautiful state of the art education
center, as well as outdoor spaces, trails, medicine wheel, labyrinth for
private reflection and connecting with the land.
“Environment is of supreme
importance. It is greater than will power.” - Paramhansa Yogananda
The staff at Top of the World Ranch
Treatment Centre is deeply committed to their client’s success. Their
care and compassion is apparent the first moment of arrival. They have heard on
many occasions “as soon as I arrived, I knew this was the right place”
“you people care, you truly care’” They do care and that makes all the
difference. They want the best for their clients and demonstrate this
desire through every aspect of your stay.
