Join us for an overview on addiction recovery as a legal professional from Dan Faneuf, Esq. and Dr. Jeff Fortgang, Ph.D. with this next installment of Webinars for Busy Lawyers.


In recognition of National Recovery Awareness Month, hear from a lawyer about his own journey to recovery.

We’ll also get a clinical perspective from LCL psychologist and alcohol/drug counselor Dr. Jeff Fortgang, offering an overview of types and levels of treatment and support developed for those suffering from addictions and for their family members.

We’ll focus primarily on alcohol use disorder, by far the most prevalent addictive challenge among lawyers.

Q&A from the live program is included in the recording.
