Employee Assistance Program

Work Life Balance 

What is an EAP Program?

An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides free and confidential assessments, short-term counseling, referrals, prevention, and education services for you and your dependents. The benefit is provided through Deer Oaks EAP Services.

How can the EAP help?

A trained counselor is available 24/7, 365 days of the year to help you and your dependents cope with life’s stressors so that you can live a happy, productive lifestyle.

Simply call the toll-free number: 1-(866)-327-2400 or visit the EAP website: www.deeroakseap.com.
