Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) concept assists supervisors and managers in dealing with performance problems in the workforce by making referral to a professional who is trained to identify and provide intervention for a variety of problems. Problems addressed by the Employee Assistance Program Coordinator (EAPC) include alcohol and drug abuse, health-related problems, marital, emotional, behavioral, financial, or any other problem affecting employees.
The EAPC works under the supervision of the Alcohol and Drug Control Officer (ADCO). The EAP is an administrative program that provides screening, referral, short-term counseling, and follow-up services to employees and their families, consultation to management, and preventive education. Many EAPCs also provide screening, referral and follow-up for these problems to military family members and retired military personnel. It is important that these personnel receive the help they need in dealing with the effects of substance abuse and other personal problems.
Professional assistance is provided for you and your family for the challenges of every day living. When you are in need of support and assistance, EAP is here for you.
The EAP can confidentially address day-to-day personal and work place challenges. This provides for a more focused and productive workforce. Short-term counseling and referrals to more extensive care can be provided for the following life concerns:
- Grief Issues
- Financial Issues

- Childcare/Eldercare Issues

- Emotional/Psychological Issues
