[WICKENBURG, ARIZONA – October 12, 2022] Meadows Behavioral Healthcare is celebrating the recognition of its new Recovery Replay podcast, which was named a Gold Winner in the w3 Awards in the General Series-Health & Wellness category. The honor finds MBH in good company, alongside winners that include Paramount, 60 Minutes, Bank of America, Givenchy, the US Secret Service, Cartier, Bezos Earth Fund, KitchenAid, Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, and Gatorade.

Hosted and edited by Dominic Lawson, Recovery Replay debuted April 26, 2022. Season 1 was made up of 13 weekly episodes that each include an MBH program alum, a loved one, and a clinician discussing an individual’s recovery journey from three unique perspectives. Produced through Meadows Behavioral Healthcare’s digital marketing department, Recovery Replay joined MBH’s existing podcast, Beyond Theory, which is scheduled for a fifth season this fall.

“I’m so proud to see Dominic’s hard work recognized with this award,” says Cherie Carter, VP of Digital Marketing for Meadows Behavioral Healthcare. “Recovery Replay explores an important topic with a unique format that makes the subject matter instantly relatable. We’re grateful the show has found an audience.”

The w3 Awards honor creative excellence on the web, recognizing the people behind award-winning sites, marketing programs, social content, mobile sites, apps, and online video. In honoring the best of the web, the w3 Awards is the first major web competition where small firms are as likely to win as Fortune 500 companies and international agencies. Having just completed its seventeenth season, the w3 Awards received over 3,000 entries from advertising agencies, PR firms, digital agencies, in-house creative professionals, web and graphic designers.

Entries are judged based on a standard of excellence as determined by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), according to the category entered. To uphold a high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all. Entries are scored on a 100-point scale by the judges. Less than 10% of all entries are selected as Gold Winners, while Best in Show selections represent the highest mark of distinction and are also selected by the Academy based on scoring. The judges award Best in Show honors to no more than 1% of all work entered.
