The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center in Wickenburg, Arizona, will honor National Military Appreciation Month this May through support of the USO’s Operation Enduring Care. In recognition of the service members who keep our country safe, for every inpatient admission during the month of May, The Meadows will make a donation to the USO in its drive to raise $100 million for Operation Enduring Care, which supports wounded warriors and their families.

A nonprofit, congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities. The USO is not part of the U.S. government but is recognized by the Department of Defense, Congress and President of the United States, who serves as Honorary Chairman of the USO.

“Working with active duty service men and women and their families is an honor we take very seriously,” said Patricia Evans, Chief Marketing Officer for The Meadows. “The goal of Operation Enduring Care – to embrace and accelerate healing, fulfillment, and a reconnection to life and relationships off the battlefield – is not unlike what we work to help our patients discover at The Meadows. We are proud to contribute to this cause.”

The Meadows is privileged to be a TRICARE Preferred Provider of behavioral health and substance abuse inpatient services with an emphasis on trauma, PTSD and addictive disease disorders to active duty military members, veterans and their dependents of the TRICARE West Region.

“The Meadows has a long history of working with TRICARE beneficiaries as a non-contracted provider,” said Jim Dredge, Chief Executive Officer for The Meadows. “We are tremendously proud to help serve the health care needs of service members, veterans, and their families, and would be happy to help determine eligibility and benefits that can be utilized at The Meadows. We are committed to helping military beneficiaries and partnering with all aspects of the TRICARE healthcare alliance.”

The Meadows is pleased to announce a contract with TriWest Healthcare Alliance, a sub-contractor of TRICARE health program. Under this agreement, The Meadows has become an approved TriWest provider for behavioral health and substance abuse inpatient services to eligible beneficiaries.

The TriWest Healthcare Alliance is contracted with the Department of Defense to administer the TRICARE West Region program in the 21-state region. As an approved TriWest provider, The Meadows' inpatient substance abuse and psychiatric services are now available to nearly 2.9 million military members, retirees and their families. The convenient location of The Meadows, just 1.5 hours north of the Phoenix airport, offers easy accessibility to soldiers and their families. This could prove to be extremely beneficial to beneficiaries associated with the seven military bases located in the state of Arizona.

"We are confident that the impeccable reputation of The Meadows combined with our breathtaking campus and state-of-the-art treatment was a critical factor in choosing The Meadows as a network provider," stated Jim Dredge, CEO of The Meadows. "The Meadows has a commitment to servicing our heroes. We have enormous gratitude to those who protect and defend our freedom. It is a great honor to be a network provider for active duty, families and retired enrollees of the TriWest program."

According to Dr. Jerry Boriskin, a Senior Fellow at The Meadows and a consulting expert to the Veterans Administration, this contract is significant because there is a benefit to having as many options available in the various sectors due to the need for occasionally higher levels of care.

Dr. Boriskin, who has worked with the veteran population for 30 years, commented that "The core challenge is to get the veteran or the civilian, for that matter, to work on acceptance, forgiveness, and most importantly self-forgiveness because things were out of control and they were horrible."

Dr. Stephen Brockway, Chief of Psychiatry at The Meadows, explains that treatment for the veteran allows a move to take place from "It's me against the world" to "There are others like me" to "I'm part of the community again."
