            The Kentucky Lawyers Assistance Program (KYLAP) has the following as set statement of purpose: 

            KYLAP is a program of the Kentucky Bar Association that offers help to members of the Kentucky legal community who are struggling with mental health issues, such as depression, alcohol and drug abuse, stress, compulsive gambling or any other condition that may adversely impact the individual’s personal or professional life. 

            KYLAP takes the firm position that addictive behavior and psychological problems including alcoholism, substance abuse, and compulsive gambling are treatable illnesses.  [KYLAP’s] experience has shown that the only stigma attached to these illnesses is an individual’s failure to seek help.
