Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs)
An EAP is a program that assists employees and family members with substance abuse, mental health, family, and other problems that negatively affect their job.
EAPs are generally provided by employers or jointly by employers and unions. These programs vary considerably in design and scope. Some focus only on substance abuse problems; others undertake a 'broad brush' approach to a range of employee and family problems. Some include proactive prevention and health and wellness activities, as well as problem identification and referral, and some are actively linked to the employee health benefit structure (Source: US Department of Health and Human Services).
