Beginning Summer 2019, The Prairie will begin offering all-inclusive, 30 to 90-day co-ed residential addiction treatment for adults using an integrative model of care established by Robert Hilliker, LCSW-S, LCDC. Hilliker is a nationally recognized Houstonian with 17 years in the field of addiction and mental health treatment, and over a decade of experience with creation and management of clinical programming and leadership.

Nestled in 46+ acres of lush green fields in Round Top—a mere 90 minutes away from Houston, Austin and San Antonio—The Prairie Recovery Center is a peaceful, countryside destination with a late 1800’s farmhouse serving as the heart of the expansive facility. Cozy guest cabins and common areas are outfitted with beautiful furnishings and designer antique décor, while panoramic views of the Texas Hill Country encircle the property.


The Prairie is unlike institutional treatment providers in that it was founded by a group of individuals who are deeply passionate about patient care, carried out with integrity, by a team of highly-skilled professionals. All of the founders are native Texans, with local roots and a global mindset.
