It’s crucial to identify a substance use disorder or other mental illness as early as possible.

This can be difficult because we often do not know the signs and symptoms and because lawyers can be very good at masking their problems. If you have a suspicion that something is wrong with a colleague (or yourself) but don’t know how to address the issue, please call LHL (866-545-9590) for help. Our team can give you information without your needing to identify yourself or your colleague. You can also find information about substance use disorders, depression, anxiety disorders, and other mental illnesses and emotional problems using the links below.
