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 percent 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.
