Helping Your Loved Ones
The caring professionals at Carrier Clinic®, a Central Jersey behavioral health facility, realize the challenges and stress that burdens friends and family. They also understand the toll it takes on your lives when a loved one of any age faces emotional/behavioral distress, and/or psychiatric and addictive disorders.
If someone you care about-whether an adolescent, teen, adult or older adult may be suffering, and is in need of professional help, we welcome you to call us anytime to initiate a conversation and provide us with background information on his or her behavior, so we can determine if our facilities and treatment are right for your loved one.
Please know, however, that we will ultimately need to speak directly to the individual to best evaluate the severity of the situation and assess if admission to our facility is needed.
Help For a Child
Carrier Clinic®’s East Mountain School, a private NJ special education school, provides education in conjunction with counseling and residential services (based on the students needs) for children with behavioral, learning, or addiction disorders. Contact East Mountain School for more information about our services and enrollment.
We also offer free support programs specifically targeted toward helping children and parents deal with addiction in their family. Choose a support program to learn more.
Help For a Codependent Partner
In a codependent relationship, the two people involved are dependent on one another in an unhealthy way that is counterproductive to good mental health and/or addiction recovery. For the partner of the addicted person, they may mean well, but they disregard their own needs at the expense of their partners. For the addicted person, their partners’ enabling behavior can prevent them from facing up to their actions or seeking help. Read our white paper on What It Means to Be Codependent to learn more.
If you are in a codependent relationship, Carrier Clinic® offers programs that can help.
Help For an Elderly Family Member
It is never easy watching a parent or older family member suffer from a mental illness or an addiction disorder. We know it is of the utmost importance to get your loved one the care they need to lead fulfilling and purposeful life.
Carrier Clinic®’s inpatient services for psychiatric conditions and addiction treatment offer a ray of hope for struggling families.
When You Need Us
Helping your loved ones is of utmost importance, especially when you see destructive behavior escalating. Call our Access Center 24 hours a day, seven days a week at (800) 933-3579 to discuss your loved one’s problem and behavior. Our behavioral health specialist can help determine the most appropriate course of action, schedule an evaluation for possible admission, and respond to your insurance questions.
Resources For Mental Illness & Addiction Sufferers & Their Families
Additionally, you can educate yourself–and refer a loved one to–our information center with resources that take an in-depth look at a variety of mental health and substance abuse topics. A good place to start could be learning 3 ways to support a loved one’s addiction recovery or some reading about some useful tips for caregivers.
We have also compiled a list of behavioral health organizations and help numbers where you can also reach out for help.
