NEW Lawyer Assistance Program
The Wyoming State Bar is pleased to introduce the NEW Lawyer Assistance Program. The mission of the Wyoming Lawyer Assistance Program (WyLAP) is to help lawyers, judges and law students get assistance for alcohol dependency, drug addiction and mental health problems; to protect clients from impaired lawyers and judges; and to educate the legal community about these issues.
WyLAP has contracted with the Wyoming
Professional Assistance Program (WPAP), which was established in 1997. It operates a professional assistance program as provided by W.S. § 33-1-115(a)(iii), for intervention, evaluation, referral and monitoring for licensed professionals suffering from chemical dependency. A trained clinician will work with individuals to determine the best treatment plan and then monitor their recovery.
There is confidential assistance available for Wyoming lawyers, judges and law students. Call 307.996.6834 or e-mail Jack Speight WyLAP Director.
Volunteer to help!
A critical aspect of WyLAP is Lawyers Helping Lawyers. This is a statewide network of volunteers trained to provide peer assistance and offer support, education and referrals for those who are experiencing problems with alcohol, substance abuse and mental health issues.
