Frequently Asked Questions
At The Prairie, we not only have the capacity to treat co-occurring disorders (dual diagnosis), we specialize in it. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, among the 9.5 million Americans diagnosed with at least one co-occurring disorder alongside a substance use disorder in 2019, only 7.8% received treatment for both simultaneously. Statistics like these point to the need for dual diagnosis treatment, something we’ve placed focus on since opening our doors.
One of the first items we’ll tackle as we begin conversations with potential clients and their loved ones is a conversation around insurance eligibility. Our admissions team will complete a verification of benefits and, more often than not, find that the potential client’s insurance covers treatment in some way.
The Prairie is unique in its layout; it is composed of multiple historical buildings, many of which serve as living quarters. The cottages where patients sleep are each unique in their design and capacity. Regardless of the cottage, each patient has their own full size bed. Clients can request a fully private room; the availability of such rooms varies and surcharges apply.
Breakfast, like all meals, takes place in a communal setting including staff and clients. The majority of the morning is filled with group work, while the afternoons provide a lot of individual therapy, individual sessions of recovery support, family or couples therapy, and independent time.
The average length of stay for clients is 45-90 days. The length of stay is dependent on the patient, evaluations by our clinical team and the progression of treatment. Simply said, there is not a standard length of stay to fit all scenarios.
In our efforts to maintain the highest standards for safety in patient care, family visitation is currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The patient-centered approach, people and environment make The Prairie Recovery Center unique. Time and time again, we hear from patients and their loved ones that the level of genuine care and the clinical approach we offer is unlike any other treatment center they’ve encountered.
