Our recovery programs, services, and tools promote the gains you made during treatment, reinforce healthy habits, and help you stay connected with your recovery community, including:
- on-site AA and NA groups

What is the Prairie Center alumni community?

Our alumni groups, newsletters, activities, and speaker events are designed to keep you connected with your alumni community.
Do I have to keep going to AA or other Twelve Step group meetings?
These mutual self-help groups provide wonderful fellowship and help people hold a steady course after addiction treatment, particularly by building connections within their home communities. Recovery from addiction is a lifelong journey and treatment is only the first step. Working a Twelve Step program and attending meetings is proven to help people sustain and thrive in recovery.
