Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) from Concern is designed to help with short-term counseling needs. It offers quick and easy access to confidential, professional assistance and resources to help employees address difficulties related to emotional concerns, relationships, substance abuse, as well as legal and financial concerns.

All services are confidential and in accordance with professional ethics and federal and state laws. Use of the EAP is strictly voluntary.
