Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Deer Oaks Employee Assistance Program | 866.792.3616

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP), offers free, confidential counseling and referral services to help you and your family deal with issues that may be affecting your job performance or personal well-being. Counselors are trained to help with such issues as:

  • marital or relationship concerns
  • family or parent challenges
  • stress
  • substance abuse
  • grief / depression

Not all State agencies have elected to provide EAP coverage for their employees. Please contact your agency Human Resource office to determine whether your agency is participating in the EAP.

When you contact the EAP, you will speak with a specialist who can help identify the issue, determine the most suitable type of assistance and work with you on a course of action. The EAP is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All consultations and counseling are completely confidential.
