The Ohio Lawyers Assistance Program is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping Ohio's judges, attorneys, and law students obtain treatment for substance abuse, chemical dependency, addiction, and mental health issues. OLAP has existed since 1991 and is active across the state of Ohio. Through OLAP, judges, attorneys, and law students receive:

  Confidential advice about individual problems
  Help in arranging and implementing formal interventions
  Help in deciding between outpatient, inpatient, and other treatment programs
  Monitoring and aftercare services

Alcoholism, substance abuse, addictive behavior, and psychological problems are treatable illnesses rather than moral issues. The only stigma attached to these illnesses is an individual's failure to seek help. It is the responsibility of the recovering legal community to help our colleagues who may not recognize their need for assistance.

If you or a colleague you know need help, contact OLAP at one of the numbers below. Your confidentiality, and the confidentiality of anyone about whom you express concerns will be protected.
