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.

Program Design

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.

Suicide Prevention

If you or anyone you know is struggling with suicide, please call 1-800-273-8255 or visit the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 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.
