About Prairie View

Prairie View's Outpatient Services offer a complete continuum of care that facilitates early intervention and treatment that is less costly and less restrictive than hospitalization, and is capable of generating change that is both clinically and statistically significant. Outpatient services are available to children, adolescents, adults, and older adults for a number of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, chemical dependency, marital problems, family issues, eating disorders, grief, dementia, sexually related issues, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anger, and more. Prairie View has a professional staff of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and nurses that work with patients to establish and achieve goals and desired outcomes with therapy. The Special Purpose School serves special education students identified as having Behavior Disorders (BD) or Pervasive Developmental Delays (PDD) from a variety of school districts. Students are placed in classrooms specializing in the education of BD or PDD students. Services provided include a specialized curriculum and behavior management services. Students are also offered group therapy as part of the school day. Admission criteria include: referral from the home school district; student is identified as needing special education services and has a current Individualized Education Plan (IEP); student has either BD or PDD; student is unable to receive educational services in a less restrictive environment; and student has no medical condition that preclude safe and effective involvement at the Prairie View school. Prairie View's Partial Hospital Services provide an important intermediate step on the continuum of care between 24-hour inpatient and outpatient services. This step down from full hospitalization provides both an alternative to hospitalization and a transitional treatment program for individuals who no longer require 24-hour care, but need more structure than is available in outpatient treatment. The less restrictive and less expensive partial hospital environment makes it possible to provide short-term intensive services to patients without removing them from their community. Prairie View's Intensive Residential Treatment program serves youth ages 12-17 who are severely behaviorally and/or emotionally disturbed. Youth are referred to the program by private and public agencies, by other care providers, and by their family. The ultimate goal for each adolescent admitted to the program is to transition to a less restrictive setting as soon as possible. To this end, family reintegration is given a high priority. Included in the treatment program are educational services (provided in conjunction with the local school district); milieu management by trained professional and non-professional staff; group, individual, and family therapy; medication and physical health management; psychoeducation on numerous topics related to mental health and successful coping; nutritious food; and an attractive and comfortable living environment. The program is directed by a master's level social worker and a multidisciplinary treatment team that includes a psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, case manager, nurses, clinical social workers, psychologists, teachers, and mental health workers. Prairie View's Inpatient Hospital is located on the Newton, Kans. campus. There are 30 staffed beds for acute care which include 15 for adolescents and 15 for adults and older adults. In addition, there are 15 beds for the intensive adolescent residential program. Patients in the hospital are provided care 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The treatment process varies depending on the needs of the patient. The patients are seen as part of the family system, and families or caregivers can expect to be included in the treatment process.
