Employee Assistance Program
An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a keystone strategy for employers seeking a low cost, effective approach to helping members and their families resolve every day life problems including, but not limited to:
- Family Issues
- Job-Related Problems
- Alcohol & Drug Dependency
The goal of the EAP is to encourage eligible employees and dependents to seek early intervention and treatment, thereby reducing behavioral health claims expenditures. Early intervention through the EAP enables resolution of a large percentage of problems before it becomes necessary to refer to more intensive – and costly – forms of treatment.
While an EAP may or may not resolve all of the issues that your employees face everyday, it is an excellent tool to assist them with coping. Studies show that for every dollar you invest in an EAP, you will generally save anywhere from $5 to $16. This savings comes from reduced absenteeism, improved productivity, fewer workers’ compensation claims and reduced medical claims.
