Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Referral
An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is an optional benefit that an employer purchases providing employees a source of personal assistance through counseling and resource referral. From time to time, employees often have a personal or family crisis that affects the workplace. Whether it is drug or alcohol abuse, physical abuse, divorce, medical issues, mental health concerns, child rearing, legal, or financial problems, an EAP can reduce costs by assisting the employee in early intervention and, if needed, make referrals for ongoing assistance. Examples of savings come from: reduced use of sick time, lowered health insurance claims, reduced workers' compensation claims, stable productivity, quality and quantity, etc. EAP programs are a very cost-effective way to save money by investing in your employees. For as little as $10 per year, per employee, your staff and their immediate families have free access for up to three 1-hour telephone appointments with a trained professional. Referral to a low-cost EAP and our other services are available through a membership in the National Drug-Free Workplace Alliance.
