The Alabama Lawyer Assistance Program through volunteers on its Lawyers Helping Lawyers Committee, provides immediate and continuing confidential help to lawyers, judges and law students who suffer from addictions and other types of mental health disorders. ALAP is committed to ensuring that members in need are given access to help. ALAP provides guidance and support to assist lawyers in dealing with a potentially fatal condition so that through recovery they may return to happy and productive lives. Services are strictly confidential. The sole aim of the program is to help lawyers recover.
If you are feeling overwhelmed with stress or depression or need help for an addiction problem for yourself or someone you know, please call. For information on ALAP’s free and confidential services, call (334) 834-7576 or the 24-hour help line at (334) 224-6920.
The Alabama Lawyer Assistance Foundation is a nonprofit corporation [501(c)(3)] under the management of an elected Board of Directors. The purpose of the foundation is to provide financial assistance to Alabama lawyers suffering from addiction, depression and other mental health illnesses, but lacking the resources to pay for appropriate help. Helping lawyers in need is a win-win situation.
Lawyers recovering from addiction and other mental health illnesses can and do return as valuable members of their families, their communities and their profession. ALAF provides the necessary means to get lawyers treatment during the most difficult times. Repayment is expected once the lawyer is back on his or her feet, so money will be available to aid the next lawyer in need. For more information call (334) 517-2244.
