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.
Mission Statement: The Mission of The Delaware Lawyers Assistance Program (DE-LAP) is to provide confidential assistance to Judges and Lawyers. Our goal is to help individuals identify problems affecting their work productivity and/or their quality of life while assisting them in developing effective solutions for those problems thereby culminating in a workplace atmosphere that encourages health and wellness, professional growth 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.
