Substance Abuse Evaluations
Cy K. Jones
Has been doing substance abuse evaluations for the New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission at their detention centers in Middlesex and Burlington counties since 2003. He is their only full-time evaluator. The juveniles he meets with come from all backgrounds, have all kinds of biopsychosocial issues and use a wide variety of substances.
Some recognize problems but many do not. Prior to Mercer Council, he was a substance abuse counselor at the Rescue Mission of Trenton for about ten years and at one point managed their clinical outpatient treatment program. He began his counseling career in 1994 with Capital Health Systems’ now defunct Mercer Area Early Intervention Services as an HIV & Addictions Counselor/Educator.
