Problems addressed by the EAP:
Alcohol and drug abuse (about 40% of clients), health related problems, marital, emotional, behavioral, financial, and other personal problems.

It is highly encouraged for the client to self-refer.  Self-referred clients tend to recognize there is a problem and are proactive in their own treatment/problem solving (about 60% are self-referrals).  The rest of the clients are referred by supervisors, family members, unions, etc.

EAP provides: (No cost) confidential problem identification and assessment services for up to four visits. Includes: constructive confrontation, motivation and short-term intervention to address problems affecting work. Makes referrals for appropriate diagnosis, treatment, and assistance. Provides linkage between workplace and community resources, and case monitoring and follow-up for clients.

The EAP is a resource for the work environment. EAP is designed to assist both the supervisor and the employee with enhancing the work environment, employee performance and the employee’s wellbeing.  Provides briefings concerning current drug and alcohol trends, team building, resources in the community, etc.

For the Employee:
The EAP is bound by confidentiality, clients can talk about issues they are having at work, home, with their spouse or co-worker, and receive unbiased, informed advise or linkage to resources.  Some EAP clients are going through a crisis and want to be able to vent their issues without being referred to outside resources.  Note: The only time that a conversation is not confidential is if it is revealed that harm will occur to yourself, others, children or to national security.

For the Supervisor:
The EAP provides expert consultation and training provided to organizational leadership (e.g. management, supervisors, and union stewards) regarding their options when dealing with problematic or troubled employees. The use of a EAP has been shown to enhance the work environment and improve employee performance.

Supervisors are encouraged to make EAP referrals when the problematic behavior begins and can be addressed with minimum disruption to the work environment and before the problem escalates (about 20% of clients are supervisor referrals).
