Please tell me what is the right proc for one categorical (three levels) vs continuous (non normal)

I have dataset which has one categorical varaible with three levels 

 

i.e. Group is the variable under which 1=Attended medication less than a year, 2= one - two years and 3= more than two years

 

and growth_index value is continuous but not normal.

 

please suggest the suitable proc...

First you have to tell us what analysis you want to perform on this data.

Mean difference? Variability difference? Distribution difference? Other?

You also could do PROC GLM for ANOVA, it is robust for non-normal data.
Or you could try Non-parameter method SAVAGE test,check the last example 
in PROC NPAR1WAY documentation.
