Overview

To live well, you need to be happy! Great workplaces provide resources and benefits to support their employees' mental and emotional well-being. Advocate's Employee Assistance Program helps associates live well by offering confidential counseling and referral services to support you when life gets tough.

Juggling family and work responsibilities, managing household responsibilities, and finding time for it all is a tall order. It's no wonder that every now and then we all feel like we could use some outside help.

The good news is that there is the Advocate Employee Assistance Program (EAP)! The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a special service to all Advocate associates. We are licensed and experienced counselors who care, listen and will help you assess the problem and make a plan for dealing with it. We can help you connect with local support groups, community organizations, therapists, and other appropriate treatment resources.

The EAP is a confidential service for you. It is a voluntary and confidential source of help for all types of issues, such as:

Stress management
Work issues
Loss/death/grieving
Parenting skills
Lay-offs and difficulties
Depression/axiety/behavioral health concerns
Anger management
Coping skills
Alcohol/substance abuse/addictions

How do I use the EAP?
You can place a confidential call directly to the program by calling 1.800.775.0304. Once you discuss your concern, the EAP Counselor will assist you in developing a plan. Information will not be shared with anyone without your written consent except if requird by law.
