Benefits of EAP Programs for Employers

Employee Assistance Programs offer a structured approach for dealing with employees whose performance on the job is costing money, draining administrative energy, and reducing productivity. It is estimated that lost time, decreased employee efficiency, increased medical expenses, and accidents cost American businesses in excess of $18 billion dollars annually. EAP's are aimed at the full range of behavioral problems that decrease employee productivity and increase company or agency costs. The EAP is a helping program that enhances and encourages a healthy work environment by providing employers/employees opportunities to manage life's problems before they impair work performance and productivity. The U.S. Department of Labor asserts that for every dollar an employer invests in employee assistance programming, the employer will save $5 to $16 dollars.

EAP therapists are trained to assess and treat all types of problems that arise in daily living. These problems may include: Depression, Anxiety, and/or other Emotional Problems, Family and Relationship Issues, Alcohol and Drug Abuse, and Stress associated with Legal and Financial Concerns, etcetera.
