If it wasn't for Carrier Clinic, I would not be here today. It is up to the individual to make the changes in his/her life, the clinic provides the medication and therapy to go along with that. Very pleased with my results.

My treatment at Carrier Clinic was very good but you need to keep in mind that you get out of the program what you are willing to invest - granted some patients are only there for the ‘free’ medication & a place to sleep/eat while they detox, but most patients are seeking help & guidance. Don’t expect to spend 3-5 days there and walk out cured - the staff at Carrier Clinic provides the resources & direction to help you on the path to wellness.

I was admitted to Carrier three times between October 3rd and February 2nd. The reviews here are ridiculous. Carrier helped me a lot. My admissions were all because of suicidal ideations/attempts. My first admission to the hospital, I was admitted into APA (adult psychiatrics and addictions). The nurses and technicians there were friendly, but didn't really interact. APA was very laid back; the staff didn't necessarily make patients follow all of the rules. The one bad thing I do have to say is that my psychiatrist, Dr. Verret, was awful. He laughed at me when I told him why I was suicidal, and all he cared about was increasing my meds. He didn't even know what med he was giving me; I was prescribed Effexor. He told me that it's good for both depression and anxiety. I later found out that it actually negatively affects anxiety. A week into my stay, an incident occurred where I had to be transferred to a more intensive unit, ACU (acute care unit). I loved the staff there. They were all very friendly, and even though I'm transgender, they very rarely made mistakes on my name and pronouns. About a week later, I was discharged, even though I told my social worker that I wasn't going to be safe at home, and I had been self harming inside of the hospital, which was very unprofessional, I will admit. I came back two days later, and I was placed in GAU (general adult unit) and I honestly hated it. It felt like a prison. You had to share bathrooms and showers with the other patients, and they were located in the hallway. There was no entertainment except for the TV. One good experience I had in this unit, though, was that one of the nurses, Yelena, put me on one-to-one (constant surveillance) when I told her that I was struggling to keep myself safe in that environment. I told my psychiatrist, Dr. Naem, that I needed to transfer back to ACU, and she made it happen around a week after I was admitted. I was struggling a lot during my time in ACU. I couldn't get better, and I continued to have suicidal ideations and urges to self harm. There were three nurses who I could really count on to help me through those times; Olivia (Liv), Celeste McKenna, and Sarah Reardon. They were all able to talk me out of that headspace, at least temporarily. I was in ACU for around two months before my social worker decided to send me to Essex County hospital, without first informing my psychiatrist, which again, was very unprofessional. I was getting better at the time, too, but I was sent off anyways. The last time I was admitted, I was admitted onto ACU again. This time, I really actually wanted to get better and I wanted to help myself, so I did. I stayed for about two weeks, and since then, I have been way better mentally than I have been in a long time. Overall, yes, I would recommend Carrier Clinic to someone in need of help. It may not be the best hospital to go to, but it definitely hoped me, and I was in a very hopeless situation.

This place is unique in a sense that it allows its clients ground privileges, smoke breaks and horticulture therapy. Living quarter are airy and spacious unlike dungeons you see in other places. Other that that it is a behavioral hospital and should be treated as such.

Stayed for four days in the adolescent unit. Exterior lovely, interior a bit dumpy but who cares? Didn't get on medication but I had a decent experience getting away from my life and calming down from suicidal urges. The observing staff/mental health technicians ('techs') are kind and funny, and make good conversation. There is one nurse per wing, some are nice, some listen well, and some seem so busy with everything that they never get to you. There is one medical doctor for EVERYONE. The psychiatrists are pretty good at listening and understanding. If you're losing your shit then you have to go to the quiet area, a single room. So don't lose your shit, be calm. Groups are held 3-4 times a day. You can choose to leave if it bores you but there are enjoyable ones like art and music making, and there are also ones about coping skills. There is a lot of down time, bring books. They have a library. You cannot be called or visited by anyone that aren't your parents, which is messed up. The fellow patients are nice and made the experience tolerable, along with the techs.
