Default Belgian Strong Ale Secondary?

So this is my first Belgian strong ale. It was a extract brew with specialty grains. OG was 1.084 The recipe I got off of Norther Brewer website. They call for putting it in a secondary for 2-3 months. I have never done a secondary before. Will I need to add yeast when it comes time for bottling or will there be enough left to carbonate? Original yeast used Wyeast Belgian Strong ale 1388 and I did do a starter.

You probably won't have to, but it'll carbonate quicker with some nice fresh yeast (half a pack of dried would do) rather than you old, stressed yeast.

You wont need any new yeast.
