Oregon Attorney Assistance Program
The Oregon Attorney Assistance Program (OAAP) is a confidential service funded by the PLF for all Oregon lawyers and judges. The OAAP provides assistance with and referral for problem alcohol, drug, and/or other substance use; stress management; time management; career transition; compulsive disorders (including problem gambling); relationships; depression; anxiety; and other issues that affect the ability of a lawyer or judge to function effectively. The OAAP is also available to Oregon law students.
The OAAP is based on the philosophy of lawyers helping lawyers. All OAAP attorney counselors are lawyers and professionally trained counselors. As a result, they are able to establish a unique rapport with members of the legal community.
