You may handle things on your own most of the time, but sometimes personal problems can be overwhelming and disrupt work, home life, and your personal sense of well-being. There may be a time that you decide to make changes, plan for your future, or work toward a healthier, more satisfying lifestyle. Whether you’re concerned about stress, family matters, job problems, or alcohol or drug issues, professional counselors are just a phone call away.
Experienced counselors of the Greenville Health System assist area employers to make comprehensive employee assistance services available to their organization. These highly personalized and comprehensive Employee Assistance Programs, commonly known simply as the EAP, are designed to meet the needs of their employees and their dependents as well as the company’s management staff. EAP professionals provide confidential, short-term counseling, information assistance, management consultations, referrals, and life management services. EAP is a resource to the individual and the company to address personal and work issues with the goals of enhancing health, well being, and productivity.
EAP is a strictly confidential program offered at no cost to employees and their dependents. EAP counselors assist employees, spouses, significant others, dependents, and adult children up to age 26. Should the EAP counselor recommend additional services outside EAP, the counselor will help clients understand costs of these services and any available insurance benefits. Counselors are knowledgeable about community resources and can assist clients to access community resources when needed.
