Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) serve companies and their employees in different ways, mostly through individual assistance to employees who are experiencing a wide range of personal difficulties. The structure of each EAP varies according to the company and can often include counseling and support services, as well as treatment referrals and access to addiction recovery programs.
Basically, an EAP is a set of professional services designed to improve the health and well being of its employees and their families, providing resources and guidance in making positive change in the life of a family. If you have an EAP through your company, let us know. We can discuss the options with the Human Resources department and put together a Change Plan that is useful and collaborative.
