Our History

Dr. Mitchell Eisenberg and Dr. Lewis Gold first co-founded Sheridan Healthcare in 1994. Under their leadership, Sheridan Healthcare grew from a single local practice to a national company in 23 states. After retiring from Sheridan Healthcare, the longtime business partners recognized an urgent need for high-quality, evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders and the underlying mental health conditions. They founded Advanced Recovery Systems to meet this need by delivering high quality care to save lives and repair families. 

The first Advanced Recovery Systems facility, The Recovery Village, opened in Umatilla, Florida in 2013. Since that time, the company has expanded into a national network of treatment centers that provide life-changing care and a pathway to long-term recovery for individuals struggling with substance use disorders. Since its founding, Advanced Recovery Systems has provided addiction and co-occurring mental health treatment to more than 45,000 people.
