CoLAP Publishes 2012 Comprehensive Survey Results

The results of the most recent Comprehensive Survey of Lawyer Assistance Programs are now available on CoLAP’s website here. The 2012 survey compiles data from nearly every lawyer assistance program in the US and includes information on annual budgets, staffing, clients and impairments served. The report demonstrates that LAPs have continued to provide consistent and significant support to the legal profession. A few particularly notable trends are worth highlighting:

  • Programs referred over 1,000 lawyer, judges and law students to treatment programs in 2012;
  • LAPs reported that prescription drugs were the second most commonly abused substance, second only to alcohol.
  • As compared to the 2010 report, services for cognitive issues/aging have increased

CoLAP greatly appreciates the input from LAPs, input that makes the survey possible.
