ABOUT PRAIRIE VIEW, INC.
Set about 25 miles north of Wichita in the small city of Newton, Kan., Prairie View is a faith-based addiction rehab and mental health treatment facility. The facility provides residential, partial hospitalization (PHP), and outpatient services for adolescents and adults, including those with co-occurring mental health disorders. There is also a specialized residential psychiatric program for children ages 10 to 17. Although the facility does not provide medical detoxification services, Prairie View partners with nearby detox centers to assist clients who require this service.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon intake, clients participate in a medical and psychological evaluation and substance abuse assessments to help develop a personalized treatment plan. Prairie View is founded in 12-step principles and the facility hosts on-site meetings, but it also integrates a range of holistic, evidence-based, and recreational activities into its program.
Modalities include weekly individual therapy, group counseling, and medication-assisted therapy, as well as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Prairie View encourages family participation, which includes addiction education, aftercare planning, and family counseling.
Clients also participate in a range of experiential and holistic therapies such as adventure course participation, yoga, creative drumming, journaling, and artistic expression therapy. In addition, the program utilizes an ancient tool called a Labyrinth, which is an ancient tool to help with meditation. Although Prairie View is a Mennonite-founded facility, the program offers non-denominational spiritual services.
Older clients may choose to enroll in Prairie View’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) called the Life Transitions Program for seniors who need more treatment than therapy alone.
The facility employs a multidisciplinary team of physicians, advanced practice registered nurses, psychiatrists, licensed substance abuse counselors, family therapists, case managers, masters level psychologists, recreational therapists, a dietician, and an on-site chaplain. Prairie View is accredited by the Joint Commission and licensed by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Set on nearly 80 acres, the Prairie View campus provides clients with views of the prairie. The intimate 14-bed facility offers private rooms, comfortable living areas, an on-site gym, recreation area, and a game room. Prairie View is tobacco-free.

Loved one Ron awarded Prairie View four or five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, the experience of the staff members, accommodations, family involvement, and affordability. “The 30 day program was intense .... and very effective,” he wrote. “I visited my child every evening that he was there and learned a lot about their program.” An anonymous family member also appreciated the staff members and the levels of family participation, and described the program as “very accommodating to families and visitors.”
Yet R.G. gave the facility just one out of five stars for its treatment effectiveness, telling Rehabs.com that his loved one felt that the staff and facility were very dismissive and financially motivated, and that she relapsed soon after leaving. And while W.R.D., whose daughter attended Prairie View, gave credit to the “very good staff,” the parent ultimately gave just one star for Prairie View’s treatment effectiveness, noting that the program did not work for their daughter.
Prairie View works with numerous insurance providers, including Tricare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Aetna. For uninsured clients, the facility partners with financial institutions to assist clients in setting up manageable payment plans and accepts self-pay.
