100 Years of Behavioral Health Service
Carrier Clinic, a behavioral healthcare 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, not-for-profit behavioral healthcare facilities in New Jersey, Carrier Clinic specializes in psychiatric and substance abuse addiction treatment, and provides a complete array of expert care and education for adolescents, adults, and older adults on the inpatient and residential levels.

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.
