Will the counselor keep my problem confidential?

Yes. Absolutely. Confidentiality is a requirement and a guarantee Affiliated EAP makes to all employees. No information goes anywhere outside of EAP without the employee's permission unless required by law. Counselors are specially trained in EAP work. They handle delicate issues, and they have the knowledge and skills to assist you toward solving your problems.

What is the EAP coverage?

EAP makes available a limited number of counseling sessions, depending on what is the most appropriate to help address your concern(s). This special benefit may be used by the employee and household members. Sometimes help beyond EAP is requires; in those cases, we can help you access the best resources available for problem resolution.
