One important employee benefit in the modern business world is an Employee Assistance Program, or EAP. An EAP provides a win-win situation for both the employer and employee, creating an optimal workplace where performance is more frequently maintained for the employer while a message of value and respect is conveyed to employees. Providing to many Hinesville area businesses and industries, our services include counseling, education, and training to the employees of any EAP contract-holders. Our center administrators will meet with your business representatives to negotiate a contract to provide a specified number of prepaid counseling sessions to employees and dependents within your company.
Once a company has a signed contract with the Fraser Center, employees can easily and confidentially access counseling for issues such as marital, family, financial difficulties, grief, substance abuse, or any other concerns that may interfere with work or personal life. An employee or dependent need simply schedule a confidential assessment by calling 369-7777. After an initial evaluation, a clinical professional will determine the appropriate level of intervention and then recommend the most appropriate course of treatment. There is no cost to the employee for EAP sessions. If treatment is advised or desired beyond the initial number of visits available via the EAP contract, the employee is responsible for payment and may use his or her health benefits package. If needed, scholarships are available on an adjusted fee scale based on family size and income. Other referral resources can also be offered. In respect of confidentiality and workplace dynamics, company representatives are NOT notified of an employee's utilization of the EAP benefit.
Confidentiality is protected by the Fraser Center as well as by state and federal law.
