Caron’s Legal Professionals Program in partnership with Decipher Investigative Intelligence is offering a free accreditation program geared to educate legal professionals in firms across the country. The program addresses the chronic and treatable disease of addiction, from substance use to addiction interaction disorders, among legal professionals.

Addiction in the Law Office: Impact, Recognition, and Response

Our complete curriculum will cover the continuum of the disease of addiction through recovery in this three-hour training. Continuing legal education (CLE) credits will be provided upon course completion. Training sessions are designed to educate people about the risks and how to avoid them and to help overcome the stigma of addiction. Sessions include:

  • Ethics
  • Data and impact
  • Disease of addiction
  • Overview of substances
  • Process addictions
  • Law firm policies
  • Warnings signs
  • Confronting the problem
  • Treatment options
  • Return to work plans

Caron Treatment Centers and Decipher are providing a timely and important service through their training session on workplace addiction. Those of us in the legal industry are particularly susceptible to wellness challenges, including addiction, given the intense demands of the profession in serving clients and solving difficult legal problems. I am very grateful, as is my firm Morgan Lewis, to Caron and Decipher for bringing out of the darkness a critical issue for our people and our wellbeing.”

Studies Support the Importance of Resources for Substance Use Disorder Among Legal Professionals

A 2016 study by the Journal of Addiction Medicine found substantially higher rates of harmful substance use and significant rates of depression, anxiety, and stress among legal professionals. A minimum of 20.6% of practicing lawyers screened positively for “hazardous, harmful, and potentially alcohol-dependent drinking”. A significant number of those surveyed for the study also reported experiencing symptoms of depression (28%), anxiety (19%), and stress (23%). A follow-up study in 2021 indicated 30% of those screened indicated positive for high-risk/hazardous drinking.
