Who We Are And What We Do
Lawyers’ Assistance Program helps Illinois lawyers, judges, law students, and their families concerned about alcohol abuse, drug dependency, or stress related issues like anxiety, burnout, depression, and many others. Our services include individual and group therapy, assessments, education, peer support, and intervention.
Our Mission Is Three-Fold
Confidentiality is the Cornerstone of LAP
Confidentiality is guaranteed. Illinois Supreme Court Rule 1.6. cloaks in confidentiality all information received by LAP volunteers and trained interveners during interventions and related meetings. Both the volunteer and client are assured that anything disclosed is specifically protected by the attorney client privilege. The only exception is if the attorney signs a written consent and asks LAP to report on their behalf to another organization or individual. Additionally, the Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Interveners and Reporter Immunity Law guarantees immunity for LAP Volunteers and those who participate in its work.
Mental Health & Substance Use Evaluations, Referrals & Supportive Services
Illinois LAP helps lawyers, judges and other legal professionals with mental disorders. This can be anything from anxiety, or drug and alcohol use problems, to stress, depression, and other issues.
If you’re suffering from any of these disorders, don’t hesitate to contact Illinois LAP today. We offer many different mental health services that are sure to help you in your time of need.
