Oklahoma LAP Roundup

Started in 1985, the Lawyers Helping Lawyers Assistance Program (LHLAP) is a committee of the Oklahoma Bar Association. LHLAP aims to “assist members who are having difficulties that adversely affect their practice.” While the majority of the calls LHLAP receives are for assistance with drug and alcohol problems, the program also assists lawyers who are struggling with emotional and physical issues such as depression, divorce, senility, and illness.

LHLAP provides strictly confidential help to attorneys seeking assistance, or those seeking assistance on the attorney’s behalf, such as family members, friends, partners, or clients.  This is achieved through referrals and ongoing assistance and support. LHLAP’s toll-free assistance line is 1-800-364-7886.

The Oklahoma Bar Association also offers a Judges Helping Judges program.
