How much does the EAP cost?

There is no cost to you or your eligible family members for EAP sessions with one of our counselors. In situations where additional help is needed beyond the EAP benefit, we will make every effort to refer members to the most appropriate and cost effective resources.

 

What are the counselor's qualifications?

All EAP counselors are professionally trained and certified or licensed in their fields. Counselors may be Ph.D./Psy. D., Psychologists, Master's Level Psychiatric Nurses, Certified Substance Abuse Professionals or Licensed Professional Counselors.

Is the Program really confidential?

All information shared with the EAP and counselors is strictly confidential. The EAP will not disclose a member's personal information without a singed release of information (ROI). In cases of management referrals, the EAP will only share compliance information with employer on the ROI. Personal information discussed in sessions will NOT be shared.

 

 

How do I know if my employees need the EAP?

Employees may need to talk to an EAP counselor if:

  • They spend most of the day worrying about a particular problem.

  • They have difficulty focusing on work assignments.

  • They are frequently absent or late.

  • You suspect they may have a drug or alcohol problem.

How does the EAP work?

  • Management Referral. If there has been a serious decline in an employee's job performance, if an employee has tested positive on a drug screen or has admitted to a substance abuse problem, a supervisor may formally refer that employee to the EAP for help.

  • Employee Referral. Employees or family member may confidentially call the EAP to obtain services on their own at any time. Callers will be connected with trained counselors who will assess the issues and refer them to the most appropriate resources.
