Kevin Chandler, an attorney and certified alcohol and drug counselor, has been named director of the Legal Professionals Program at Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. Chandler is a board member at Minnesota Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, which assists members of the legal profession, and authored a book of daily meditations for lawyers called The Lawyer's Light.

Chandler replaces Patrick Krill, who will continue in a consulting capacity at Hazelden Betty Ford, a July 18 news release stated.

A recent study co-sponsored by Hazelden Betty Ford highlighted a substantial prevalence of alcohol use disorders among practicing attorneys, who face challenges based in part on their public profile and the stressors common in the profession.
