Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Drug Free Workplace Training
South Community has provided EAP services for over 25 years. We work with employers and their employees to augment employers’ efforts to maintain a healthy and productive workforce.
In 1997, South Community was selected by the Dayton Chamber of Commerce as their value-added EAP provider. The selection criteria utilized by the Chamber was based upon experience, services offered, geographic access, diversity of clinicians and overall value.
What is an EAP? – An EAP is designed to help employers and employees deal with personal and workplace challenges. EAP’s are often the first step in recovery for alcohol and drug abuse, anger management, financial crisis and other life issues. EAP’s save employers millions of dollars each year by intervening in personal and work issues that affect productivity, and the emotional well-being of employees and their family members.

Who needs counseling?
Anyone who wants it! Unfortunately, many people still associate counseling with mental illness or personal weakness. Of course, neither one is true. People decide to get counseling for many reasons, including feeling “stressed out”, low self esteem, shyness, depression… all the things that make us human.
Will anyone know I’m receiving counseling?
Counseling is strictly confidential. Unless required by law, the counselor can not and will not release any information without the person’s express written consent.
What about training?
EAP PLUS provides supervisor and employee EAP orientation sessions and periodic topic specific training at the employer’s request. Topics may include: Working Together, The Psychology of Money, Job Burnout, Stress Management, to name but a few. We can also provide a complete Drug Free Workplace Training Program to an employer for an additional charge.
How much does all this cost?
There is no charge to an employee or family member for EAP Plus services. EAP Plus contracts with an employer on either a capitated or fee-for-service basis.
