Why are law students, State Bar applicants, and attorneys with substance use and mental health issues combined in the same group meetings?
LAP groups do not focus on the specific treatment of any diagnosis.
In addition, recovery from problematic substance use and recovery from a mental health issue are similar in that a prescribed structure assists in the process.
Also, many LAP participants are recovering from both substance use and mental health issues. Feedback from LAP participants confirms that benefits are derived from the combined group meetings.
