Joe Montalvo

Program Facilitator

I served four years in the U.S. Coast Guard as a machinery technician. Prior to, and during my time in the military I recognized that I was heavily abusing alcohol, and in the subsequent years would become alcohol dependent. After seeking treatment I have built a strong foundation for maintaining my sobriety through my journey of self discovery. I study and regularly participate in many spiritual practices such as Qi Gong. I have also found SMART recovery to be a valuable support group in my recovery. The opportunity to use what has helped me maintain sobriety to help others find their way not only to sobriety, but also rediscovering their self worth, joy, and love for life, has become my deepest passion. To be of service to others is truly my highest calling.

The vast techniques and processes that they incorporate along with the amazing environment and facilities at Top of the World Ranch are what I, as a recovering alcoholic and addict, find essential in physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing and growth.


AMAZING facility with a knowledgeable, friendly staff. I recently had the opportunity to tour the ranch and I must say that I was thoroughly impressed. The facility grounds are expansive and absolutely peaceful. Perfect setting for healing, discovery, and recovery.


The Main Lodge is unlike any other treatment center...from the counselors' offices, the programming rooms, the games and leisure rooms, to the Chef's culinary skills...i was in awe. The staff, effortlessly, made me feel welcomed. I felt I belonged, I was safe.


On Top of the World Ranch , the place is amazing. The facility is beyond beautiful and lead by a staff that is the best in their field. It is tucked away in the country, just outside of the Quad Cities. Very conveniently located near airport or any of the Interstates , very easy to get to.
