EAP is an acronym for Employee Assistance Program
. The EAP is a free resource
in most companies. They offer counselors that can help you through a lot of different problems, like stress
, and addiction
issues. You are usually limited to a certain amount of sessions before they will refer you to someone else for a medical evaluation or more intensive therapy
Sometimes, people are referred to the EAP if they appear to have a drug problem at work, or other problems that are affecting their job performance. I have used the EAP with two different companies, and I've found it to be a very valuable resource. Take advantage of it if you have it and need someone to talk to. It can make a world of difference.
