100 Years of Behavioral Health Service
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.
Carrier Clinic is accredited by the Joint Commission, and is a member of the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA), the New Jersey Association of Mental Health Agencies (NJMHA), the American Hospital Association (AHA), the National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems (NAPHS), the Somerset County Business Partnership and the Princeton Chamber of Commerce.
