Our Website

We also want to connect more people to the life-saving treatment they need for addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. We believe by sharing accurate information about addiction and mental health, we can help fight the stigma that surrounds these disorders and encourage and empower more people to seek the life-changing treatment they need for themselves or a loved one. We want to help people understand the facts, risks and available treatment options so that they can make informed decisions about addiction treatment and long-term recovery planning.

Our Story

The Recovery Village is part of the Advanced Recovery Systems nationwide network of addiction treatment facilities. Established in 2013 by Dr. Mitchell Eisenberg and Dr. Lewis Gold, Advanced Recovery Systems is an integrated behavioral health care management company dedicated to the treatment of addiction, substance abuse and mental health disorders.

Dr. Eisenberg and Dr. 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 underlying mental health conditions. They founded Advanced Recovery Systems to meet this need by delivering the highest quality of care to save lives and repair families.

Our Philosophy on Addiction Recovery

The Recovery Village recognizes addiction as a mental health disorder. Therefore, our approach to treatment is the same way we approach any other mental health condition — by treating the emotional, mental and physical symptoms simultaneously while addressing the root cause.

We accomplish this by providing clients with access to addiction experts, personal treatment plans tailored to meet their needs, aftercare programs and other resources for longterm healing. We treat the whole person instead of focusing only on their addiction and we make sure to address underlying conditions that can contribute to substance abuse.

Our Core Beliefs

At The Recovery Village, we believe in delivering safe, effective care to each patient that entrusts us with their health. We believe that:

  • Anyone can recover from addiction
  • Every patient deserves respectful, compassionate care
  • Addiction is a disease that can be treated with evidence-based and research-backed care
  • Treating substance use and co-occurring mental health conditions simultaneously can lead to lasting healing
  • Recovery is a journey that requires a lifelong commitment

Accreditations & Memberships

Treatment at The Recovery Village is led by our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kevin Wandler and is supported by experienced, highly-qualified addiction specialists including licensed mental health counselors, licensed social workers, registered nurses and more. Collectively, our staff holds over 3,000 professional credentials.

Each facility in our network meets and exceeds local and national standards for addiction and behavioral health care practices. In fact, The Recovery Village in Umatilla, Florida and Orlando Recovery Center in Orlando, Florida have been recognized as two of the first facilities to receive the Blue Distinction® Center for Substance Use Treatment and Recovery designation.

We are committed to providing exceptional service to promote long-term recovery. Depending on the location, accreditations and memberships may include:

Our Leadership Team & Staff

The Recovery Village is made up of an expert team of dedicated professionals, from the medical and clinical staff that treat patients every day to the executive leadership team that leads our business. Your recovery is our mission and we make it a priority to ensure that each client receives the individual care they deserve for lifelong recovery.

Our skilled staff ensures patient safety with a focus on each individual’s specific needs. Every Advanced Recovery Systems facility, including The Recovery Village, meets and exceeds local and national standards for addiction and behavioral health care practices.

  • Community Outreach Team

    Our dedicated outreach team works with other professionals in the community, including hospitals, therapists, social workers and other treatment centers, to help connect more people struggling with addiction to the recovery resources they need.

    In addition to being a resource for our community partners, we also host monthly Continuing Education events in each of our local communities, led by qualified experts in behavioral health. These events help health care professionals fulfill required continuing education hours and continue to provide informed care to their patients and clients.

  • Our Editorial Team & Medical Reviewers

    We know that dealing with substance abuse can be complex, emotional and uncertain. That’s why we work with an experienced team of medical reviewers, writers and editors to create, publish and share the most valuable, up-to-date and accurate information about addiction, treatment and recovery resources.

What Sets Us Apart

Our goal is to offer compassionate, evidence-based care to every patient we serve while providing them with the tools they need to heal and begin a lifelong recovery journey. The Weekly Recovery Compass program is one of these tools utilized as part of a customized treatment plan. The Weekly Recovery Compass program helps identify and address potential setbacks in real time by monitoring symptoms like depression, anxiety levels, sleep quality and substance cravings.

Your mental, emotional and physical health are just as unique and important as you are. Because no two clients are exactly the same, The Recovery Village takes an individualized approach to patient treatment. Our skilled staff ensures patient safety while focusing on each client’s personal growth and healing.
