Lawyers and Judges abuse drugs and alcohol at a higher rate than the general population. Here’s the statistics.

18-20% of lawyers abuse drugs. Approximately 220,000 (1.1 million US attorneys)

25% of lawyers facing disciplinary actions are found to be abusing drugs or alcohol and over 50% suffer from a mental disorder (dual diagnosis).

Why Do Lawyers and Judges Abuse Drugs and Alcohol

Here are some of the various reasons why lawyers are twice as likely as general population to abuse drugs and alcohol.

Long Hours at Work – Average Lawyer works 60-80 hrs weekly.
Studies show people who work 50+ hrs/wk are 3 times more likely to abuse alcohol.
33% of lawyers diagnosed with mental disorders. Large correlation with drug/alcohol abuse = dual diagnosis.

Like other high functioning professionals, lawyers and judges often carry an extreme workload. Then they escape their professional or family problems by using drugs or alcohol.

Fear of Receiving Treatment

70% of drug and alcohol dependent lawyers think they can handle the problem.

40% fear that receiving official treatment would have a negative impact on their reputation.

Treatment can be Completely Private

As long as drug and alcohol rehab is sought voluntarily by the judge or attorney, it can remain completely private. There are 2 reasons for this. The first is HIPAA and the second is the Federal Regulations associated with Title 42. There is no mandatory notification of any licensing board.

Many of America’s lawyers face a potentially serious health issue.

A new study from Hazelden Betty Ford found that problem drinking among lawyers was significantly higher compared to the general public. Men and younger lawyers were most likely to display problem drinking behaviors.

Moderate alcohol consumption is one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men, according to the medical resource Up To Date. Problem drinking interferes with a person’s professional or personal life.

Problem drinking is a sign that the drinker is beginning to lose control over his or her drinking. It includes excessive alcohol consumption and binge drinking.
