Employee Assistance Program - EAP

EAP Employee Assistance Program


An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is one that gives employees access to drug assessment, treatment and rehabilitation services, drug education and therapy that may occur within the company or from outside providers. The EAP is not involved in the collection of urine samples or the initial reporting of test results. It does; however, ensure that confidentiality of test results and medical and rehabilitation records is maintained. The range of services provided by EAP professionals includes confidential assessment and short term counseling on marriage and family problems, stress related problems, financial and legal difficulties, and psychological and workplace conflict. See our lists of EAP Services and the EAP-SAP website. Be sure your Employee Assistance program uses a CEAP, or Certified Employee Assistance Professional.
