Employee Assistance Program

Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a service to employers and their employees. Offered by forward-looking firms as part of their benefit packages, EAP is a ready resource that employers and employees can turn to before personal difficulties escalate and interfere with job performance. Services are provided promptly in a private and confidential setting.  Since there are no waiting lists, appointments can be scheduled within two days of the initial contact.

A wide range of problems are addressed through the program’s counseling and education services:

  • Workplace concerns 
  • Marital or relationship problems
  • Alcohol or drug problems 
  • Depression and/or anxiety 
  • Difficulty managing stress
  • Financial problems

EAP offers brief therapy for issues that require basic problem solving and short-term treatment. If the initial assessment indicates that a more sustained response is needed, EAP assists in connecting employees to professionals who are skilled in treating the identified issue.  

Other EAP services include:
  • Training on assorted workplace issues (stress management, wellness, conflict resolution, substance abuse, depression, parenting, sexual harassment, and violence prevention)
  • Ongoing consultation to employers
  • Supervisory training
  • Assistance with policy development
  • Providing a framework for achieving a drug-free workplace
  • Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD):  It’s good to know where to turn if a traumatic event occurs in the workplace.
