These self tests are not diagnostic in nature. Please contact the Iowa Lawyers Assistance Program for a confidential and free assessment.
This series of questions concerns one's mental well-being. Answer "yes" or "no" to the statements below. This self test is not a substitute for a professional evaluation (ILAP personnel can provide a confidential and free evaluation in person).
If you answered "yes" to five or more of these statements, and you have felt this way everyday for several weeks, there is a good chance you are suffering from depression and should call us today to make an appointment to see us.
If you answered "yes" to the last statement, you should seek help immediately, regardless of your answer to any other question.
CALL ILAP TODAY FOR CONFIDENTIAL HELP: (800) 243-1533
A "yes" answer to any of these questions suggests that it would be wise to seek professional evaluation (at ILAP or elsewhere), but may not indicate that you have a diagnosable addictive disorder. Evaluations of alcohol/drug problems should be done by a clinician with addiction credentials and/or experience working in an addiction-oriented setting.
When I needed help, ILAP was there for me.

This series of questions about one's use of alcohol or drugs is an informal inventory of "tell-tale signs," with many items tailored to lawyers. It is not a list of official diagnostic criteria, and does not substitute for a professional evaluation (ILAP personnel can provide a confidential and free evaluation in person).
If you are in need of help or are concerned that an attorney, judge, or law student has an issue that might be interfering with their personal or professional lives, there is confidential help.
ILAP's weekly, confidential, and virtual
AA meetings are held Thursdays at noon.
