Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can provide employees with the skills needed to understand and cope with problems or situations before they develop into more serious concerns. EAP is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to all employees and their immediate family members.

Up to five sessions with EAP are offered at no cost to employees or their family members. These sessions provide professional, confidential assistance to help resolve concerns that affect their personal lives or work performance, including:

  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Depression
  • Financial concerns
  • Marital and family problems and concerns
  • Work-related issues

If the issues cannot be resolved during the initial sessions, an EAP consultant can connect employees with appropriate resources to provide ongoing assistance. Take a look at the EAP Employee Orientation video. To schedule an appointment to meet with an EAP Consultant, please call us at (608) 775-4780 or (800) 327-9991, M-F, 8 a.m.-5 p.m..

Manager Services

As a manager or supervisor you may be faced with many challenges on a daily basis. You may have an employee whose job performance is slipping, or another who is having attendance problems. Maybe your department is affected by a recent crisis such as the death of an employee, robbery or threats of violence, or changes within the company that may have affected staff morale. Whatever the issue, EAP is available. Check out our manager training video, EAP: A Management Intervention Tool

EAP also offers services for managers, including:

  • Confidential and professional employee assessments and referrals
  • Training and consultation
  • Debriefing services
