The Lawyer’s Guide to Healing: Solutions of Addiction and Depression
Don Carroll, J.D., published 2006, 183 pages
Stress, power, and high expectations of the legal profession leave lawyers especially vulnerable to addiction. What’s more, personality traits that contribute to a lawyer’s success – among them, grandiosity and a need to control – can impede recovery. As director of the North Carolina Lawyer Assistance Program, Don Carroll has helped hundreds of colleagues overcome addiction and depression. In this candid and insightful book, Carroll discusses addiction in general, how addiction affects lawyers specifically, and how recovery can help lawyers reclaim their professional and personal lives.
