The Best Addiction Treatment Centers 2020 ranking lists the best facilities in the 20 states with the most number of facilities, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Newsweek and Statista designed a rigorous methodology that provided a score for every evaluated addiction center. The scores were based on the reputation survey conducted by Newsweek and Statista and the accreditation score based on SAMHSA data.

“Blake Recovery Center’s staff is ecstatic to be recognized as one of Newsweek’s Best Addiction Treatment Centers 2020, and they certainly deserve this honor,” said Donald J. Parker, president of Carrier Clinic. “This expertly trained, caring and dedicated group of professionals are the best in the business.” Located on Carrier Clinic’s campus in the Belle Mead section of Montgomery Township, the non-profit recovery center opened more than 40 years ago.

The center is part of Hackensack Meridian Carrier Clinic, a not-for-profit behavioral health care provider specializing in psychiatric and addiction treatment.
