Lawyer Assistance Programs
A number of programs are available for attorneys who need assistance. These are outlined below.
Member Assistance Program (MAP)
The Toledo Bar Association Member Assistance Program (MAP) is a source for help for TBA members.
The Toledo Bar Association understands that anyone can use a little help at some point, for difficulties from stress or marital problems to substance abuse or job burnout, which is why we offer the Member Assistance Program (MAP) through Symmetry Wellness. The MAP gives TBA members the opportunity to receive professional counseling to assist with life’s problems. Participation in the program is confidential and completely voluntary.
Any TBA member is qualified to participate. The TBA will pay for up to six appointments with the MAP provider on an annual basis commencing on July 1 and ending on June 30 of the following year. The TBA member will be financially responsible for all services/treatments beyond the six one-hour visits. Symmetry can assist in identifying insurance and/or community resources that may cover all or part of the cost of any additional services.
If you have a question regarding the services available, please contact Symmetry at: 419.475.5338 or 800.422.5338
