The Employee Assistance Program is for the individual employee and the employee's immediate family members. The EAP is designed to provide confidential help to individuals whose personal problems are affecting their ability to function at home, in their social life, or on the job. EA Professionals are available to assess the problem, provide guidance regarding the available alternatives for solving the problem, and to help to find the best solutions. Confidentiality is maintained! No one in the school system other than the program staff has access to information on any employee who seeks help through the program. Seeking assistance through the EAP in no way jeopardizes one's employment or promotional opportunities.

Some of the areas in which the Employee Assistance Program can provide assistance include:

Family or Marital Programs
Alcoholism or Drug Abuse
Medical Issues
Financial Concerns
Domestic Violence
Conflicts on the Job

If the individual and the EA Professional counselor decide that the particular problem warrants outside professional help, short-term counseling and confidential referrals will be made to community resources.
