Investigate the associations between drug abuse and the preva- lence of the engagement and burnout dichotomy in law professionals. Methods: Eligible participants completed a questionnaire where odds ratios of drug abuse and other confounding variables and their association to engagement or burnout were calculated using multiple logistic regression. Results: When looking at all law professionals, burnout is a statistically significant predictor for drug abuse (P ¼ 0.04, not shown). Law professionals whose burnout scores fell in the highest bin have 4.71 (95% CI [1.38 – 16.08]) times higher odds of having a problem with drug abuse than those whose burnout scores fell in the second bin. Conclusion: Study findings showed a possible way to affect the prevalence of drug abuse in law professionals by affecting the engagement and burnout dichotomy.
