Nearly 44 percent of attorneys with alcohol use disorders say that problematic drinking began within the first 15 years of practicing law, which suggests that the early stages of a legal career are often associated with a higher risk of developing an alcohol addiction.The immense pressure and responsibilities of the profession can lead to a number of mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. For attorneys, the stress levels are high, competition is fierce, hours are long, and the conflict between a case and one’s own value system are often contributing factors that can lead to a substance use disorder. As a result, the use of alcohol, prescription, and illicit drugs are among this population is higher than in most other fields.
