|Getting Help Doesn't Sabotage Your Career, But Not Getting Help Can!
The Delaware Lawyers Assistance Program (De-LAP) was created to confidentially expand help to Judges and Lawyers with substance abuse/dependence and/or mental and physical health problems.
The Mission of the Delaware Lawyers Assistance Program (De-LAP) is to provide confidential assistance to Judges and Lawyers to help them identify and address problems such as depression, stress, substance abuse/dependence, gambling addiction and other illnesses and to assist them in developing effective solutions that culminates in a workplace atmosphere that encourages professional growth, excellence and maintains the integrity of the legal profession.
The Delaware Lawyers Assistance Program (De-LAP) provides a confidential, free, non-disciplinary way for Delaware’s Judges and Lawyers to seek appropriate help for problems before they sabotage an individual’s career and/or quality of life. Referrals are confidential.
Any legal professional that seeks assistance as a self-referral can be assured that their information will be held in the strictest confidence. Similarly, those who are concerned about a co-worker, peer or other legal professional are guaranteed the same confidentiality.
Don’t Suffer Silently. We Do Together
What Need Not Be Done Alone!
Carol P. Waldhauser, Executive Director
