About Carrier Clinic   
Carrier Clinic

Carrier Clinic®, a behavioral health system, has been a trusted source of compassionate help and supportive healing for patients and their families since we opened our doors in 1910.

One of the largest independent, nonprofit central Jersey behavioral health facilities, Carrier Clinic specializes in inpatient psychiatric treatment and treatment and rehabilitation for substance abuse. We provide a complete array of expert care and education for adolescents and teens, adults, and older adults on the inpatient and residential levels. Outpatient services are provided for ECT treatment and drug abuse addiction.

Ours is a safe, compassionate, and respectful environment, set on a beautiful 100+ acre country setting at the foothills of the Sourland Mountains, in centrally-located Belle Mead, NJ. Our caring, supportive staff is among the best in their respective fields, all driven by the similar goal of returning each individual back to their family, workplace, community, and the things they enjoy.

Since 1910, Carrier Clinic® has been a trusted source of expert care for those afflicted with mental disorders or substance abuse. We rank among the top psychiatric and rehab recovery centers in NJ for several reasons. We’re always respectful of our patients’ privacy. We’re always compassionate to each individual situation. Our specialized mental health and addiction treatment programs work to return adults, adolescents, and older adults back to enjoyable and productive lives.

A Message From Donald J. Parker, President of Carrier Clinic

Donald ParkerWe are proud that our team at Carrier Clinic has offered caring solutions and served as a trusted source of healing for patients and their families since we opened our doors in 1910.

Your healing experience begins as you enter our 100-acre campus, which is set in the foothills of the Sourland Mountains in scenic Somerset County, New Jersey. We are flanked by a 14-acre solar farm that provides a clean, safe and sustainable energy source for our facilities.

While nature sets the stage for our patients’ healing, Hope and Recovery are initiated by our expert clinical and patient care staff. Carrier Clinic provides comprehensive treatment and education for adolescents, adults and older adults needing psychiatric and addiction treatment on the inpatient and residential levels. Ours has always been a safe, compassionate and respectful environment, with caring, supportive professionals who have excelled in their respective fields as psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, addiction treatment counselors, and art and music therapists.

Carrier Clinic has undergone a metamorphosis over the last few years, as we added two new wings to our hospital and refurbished the remaining sections. Our continuing efforts to enhance the “Healing Environment” that our patients experience during their recovery will involve bringing nature and light into our buildings and combining it with artwork throughout. We hope Carrier Clinic’s grounds and facilities can be a source of strength, inspiration, and comfort during our patients’ most difficult moments.

The Carrier Clinic experience combines multiple elements, from our place in nature, to our comforting facilities, to our dedicated and skilled professionals. We strive to create a continuum of care where Hope is restored and Recovery begins. This has been true for the last 100 years and remains our vision as we move forward into our next century of dedicated service.
