> Drugs, Alcohol, and Mental Health Concerns
Florida Lawyers Assistance, Inc. (FLA, Inc.) is a program initiated in response to the Florida Supreme Court’s desire to create a program to identify and help Florida Bar members whose lives and careers are adversely affected by addiction, compulsive behaviors or psychological problems that need to be addressed in the best interests of the person and the public. The focus of Florida Lawyers Assistance Program is on protecting the lawyer’s life, career, and clients.
Practicing law in the modern age can include overwork and large amounts of mental stress, which may in turn lead to a propensity toward depression, substance abuse or consequential risk-taking. If any Florida lawyer is suffering from any personal issues such as these, he or she is encouraged to contact FLA, Inc. directly by calling 1-800-282-8981, or by email to email@example.com, or through their website at www.fla-lap.org.
