Employee Assistance Counseling Program
Alamance Regional offers an employee assistance counseling program (EACP) that provides confidential, professional counseling for personal and work-related problems. The EACP currently serves Alamance Regional and many area companies. Our licensed therapists have extensive training and experience and hold master’s or doctoral degrees.
The program helps with problems that include:
- Alcohol and drug abuse
- Job conflicts
- Marital problems
- Children's Services
In the workplace, any of these problems can cause repeated absenteeism, missed deadlines, interference with job performance and increased accidents.
In fact, research shows that 75 percent of employees who are disciplined at work have a personal or family problem that is affecting job performance. If the problem is severe, that employee can also affect the safety, security, morale and productivity of co-workers.
Services that Alamance Regional’s EACP provides, such as marriage counseling and grief counseling, can mitigate the negative impact of these problems. In cases where individuals need more intensive or longer duration services, EACP refers them to qualified, professional resources in our community, to help them both at work, and in their personal lives.
In addition to psychotherapy and counseling for individuals, couples and families, our EACP program also conducts workshops, management consultations and critical incident stress debriefing.
