Lawyers experience higher rates of mental health issues and substance abuse than any other profession.

In fact, according to a recent study conducted by the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation and the ABA as much as 36.4% of lawyers qualify as problem drinkers, and one out of four lawyers have some form of depression or anxiety. 

When you add up the stress, long hours and social fabric of practicing law, it's no wonder that some lawyers are drinking too much, struggling with substance abuse, and suffering from depression, anxiety, and stress. 

This practical program will explain the far-reaching impacts of the problem and show you the proactive policies and protocols your firm should put in place today.
