Prairie View


Prairie View, one of 102 private, nonprofit substance abuse treatment facilities in Kansas, offers a range of services for individuals struggling with chemical dependency, mental health and co-occurring disorders. Substance use treatment includes inpatient care, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), and outpatient program (OP).


At Prairie View, substance use treatment begins with an evaluation to determine the best level of care. The inpatient Addiction Treatment Center (ATC), located on the main campus in Newton, Kan., addresses both the substance use and the underlying factors that may contribute to addictive behavior.

This comprehensive treatment approach, which builds upon the 12-step model of recovery through group and other forms of therapy and interventions, seeks to resolve complicated issues and prevent relapses. Inpatient clients also engage in daily physical exercise, nondenominational spirituality groups, and participate in aftercare planning during the program, which generally lasts 21 to 28 days.

The IOP operates Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the organization’s East Wichita facility. Clients participate in nine hours of weekly group therapy as well as individual and family sessions. The OP for adults and youth addresses substance use disorders through individual and family therapy.


Prairie View is accredited by The Joint Commission. Professional staff includes an M.D., nurses, clinical psychologists, Ph.D.- level therapists, licensed clinical social workers, and certified addiction counselors.


At Prairie View’s ATC, each client has a private room with its own bathroom. The tobacco-free, 14-bed facility is set on a secluded 80-acre plot of land with a chapel, pond, and trees. The IOP is held on a park-like campus at a satellite center.


The two alumni polled by to date provided positive feedback concerning the facility, both offering perfect five-star ratings for the cleanliness of the facility, level of staff experience and training, and its ability to treat of co-occurring disorders. One alum considered it “a great facility,” while the other alum added: “They can help you with everything,” but considered the cost “really high.” Both alumni also gave more moderate three-star ratings for the level of family participation.

Secondary sites yielded mixed feedback to date. On Google reviews, 10 individuals gave the facility an average rating of 3.3 out of five stars, while 21 individuals gave the facility an average rating of 3.3 out of five stars on Facebook, which the facility may be able to manage.[1] [2] Opinions ranged from “best mental health care” in the area to “god awful place.” Some reviewers praised the supportive, compassionate atmosphere, while others felt the facility suffered from poor communication.


Employee reviews to date on secondary sites were moderately favorable. On Indeed, five individuals gave the facility an average rating of four out of five stars, while 10 individuals gave the facility an average rating of 3.1 out of five stars on Glassdoor.[3] [4] Positive feedback praised the good working environment and the facility’s patient-centered care.


Prairie View works with numerous insurance companies, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Coventry. Private pay is accepted, and payment plans are offered to make the cost of treatment more accessible.

  • They have the ability to take your mind off of addiction. The cost was really high. Prairie view is a great facility. They can help you with everything from addiction to depression. The only issue you'll have is not knowing how expensive it is until you look into it.
