Blake Recovery Center™ at Carrier Clinic® honored by Mental Health Association for Advancements in Addiction treatment
Carrier Clinic®’s substance abuse facility, the Blake Recovery Center™ (BRC), was recently honored at the Mental Health Association in New Jersey’s 17th Annual Evening of Excellence for making a difference in the lives of people coping with addiction.
Blake Recovery Center, one of the top drug rehab centers in NJ, treats approximately 1500 residents annually who are suffering from substance abuse.
Accredited by the Joint Commission, the Blake Recovery Center provides exposure to a full spectrum of traditional and holistic drug addiction treatments. Innovations in compassionate care are delivered in a brand new facility which offers a more comfortable and therapeutic environment and includes scientific advances in behavioral health to encourage recovery.
One of the newest innovations in the field of addiction medicine is the use of an FDA-approved Nexalin device, which creates a frequency waveform that affects key brain structures involved in resetting the hypothalamus function to decrease relapse potential within early recovery. Nexalin is non-invasive and the only alternating current device on the market that has a very clean side effect and safety profile. Blake Recovery Center began using the Nexalin treatment in select patients in 2015, and after seeing initial positive results, is now conducting pre-clinical trials in-house.
Mark White, COO of Nexalin Technology says “it is thrilling to work with an innovative, enthusiastic, fast-moving executive like Don Parker, CEO of Carrier Clinic.”
“Nexalin has been well received by our patients and has had a noticeable impact on their ability to concentrate, relax and sleep during their treatment at Carrier Clinic. We are excited about upcoming clinical trials we will be conducting with the University of Pennsylvania which will validate our initial positive findings and determine the long-term impact of Nexalin in preventing relapse which is all too common in substance abuse treatment,” says Parker.
Blake Recovery Center was built as a stand-alone addiction center on Carrier Clinic’s Belle Mead, NJ campus in 1981, and named for William Blake, a local resident who dedicated his life to helping those suffering from alcoholism.
