  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

    Employees who are experiencing personal or work-related problems can seek help to resolve those problems with a professional counselor through the Employee Assistance Program.  Problems relating to family/relationships, workplace issues, personal/emotional, alcohol/drugs, health, and behavioral can all be addressed through counseling.  Employees can call the EAP program at any time: 1-800-222-0364, or TTY 1-888-262-7848 to make an appointment with a counselor.  No referral is necessary, and services are confidential. 

    Supervisors may also contact the EAP for assistance with resolving workplace problems, and supervisors can also refer employees to the EAP.
