Our History

The IAFF Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health Treatment and Recovery opened in March 2017 through a partnership between the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and Advanced Recovery Systems. Established in 2013, 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. They opened their first facility, The Recovery Village Umatilla, in 2013 and have since expanded into a network of treatments centers across the U.S. to provide even more access to life-changing care and a pathway to longterm recovery to those who need it.
