Employee Assistance Programs
Helping Employees Overcome Addiction and Substance Abuse
A Firm Foundation for Employees’ Long-Term Sobriety
Hill Country Detox maintains established relationships with various EAP representatives to help ensure that addicted employees in the workplace receive adequate and affordable treatment. We are always looking to partner with additional EAP representatives and our admissions specialists are available to speak with individual clients who have questions about using an Employee Assistance Program to obtain substance abuse treatment.
Our admissions staff communicates directly with the client or EAP representative to ensure that the client’s proposed detox treatment meets all employment and EAP requirements. Throughout the duration of detox treatment, the client’s primary care team will also provide progress updates and reports to fulfill any and all EAP requirements.
As a reputable and accredited medically-assisted detox center, we provide high-quality drug and alcohol detox to help addicted employees establish a solid foundation in recovery and continue on to complete drug rehab. Our treatment team works together with each client to design an individually tailored treatment plan that addresses all physical and emotional needs and provides helpful recommendations for ongoing treatment. Our staff will even connect each client with an appropriate inpatient or outpatient rehab program upon the completion of detox and assist them through the entire enrollment process.
We find that this thorough and comprehensive process is an effective solution to help addicted employees successfully achieve long-term sobriety and become valuable and productive members of the workforce.
About Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs)
An Employee Assistance Program (or EAP) is an employer-sponsored benefit program that provides free, confidential assistance to employees who are struggling with personal issues. More than 97 percent of large companies in America offer EAPs and even the majority of medium-sized and smaller companies do too.
These programs are designed to help employees manage personal issues that may be affecting their performance at work while also giving employers a way to support their workers, improve workplace efficiency and productivity, and cut back on expenses related to employee turnover, health benefit utilization, and workers’ compensation claims.
A covered employee can use EAP services to manage a variety of personal issues, such as:
- Substance abuse problems
- Psychological disorders
- Marital issues
- Emotional and/or physical abuse
- Financial or legal issues
EAP services regarding substance abuse problems will vary based on the employer’s plan, but employee benefits may include free referrals to substance abuse treatment programs, direct counseling, and/or personal assistance re-integrating back into the workplace upon completion of treatment. These services are also usually made available to the employee’s spouse, children, or a non-married partner that lives in the same household.
When an employee uses EAP services to seek help for a substance abuse problem, his or her employer will not be alerted and the employee’s position will not be terminated unless the law requires it.
Drug addiction and substance abuse in the workplace costs employers about $81 billion annually and directly contributes to the number of workplace injuries and deaths, employee turnover, and employee theft. It also decreases overall productivity and performance in the workplace, damages employee morale, and negatively influences the public image of the company.
EAPs help to minimize and eliminate substance abuse in the workplace while simultaneously providing a host of great benefits for employers and employees alike.
EAP Benefits for Employees:
- Confidential assistance addressing substance abuse problems
- Job security
- Help to resolve other co-occurring issues such as depression and anxiety
- Immediate support
- Improved performance at work
- Enhanced health and wellness
EAP Benefits for Employers:
- Fewer employee absences
- Fewer workplace injuries and fatalities
- Less employee theft
- Fewer workers’ compensation claims
- Decreased legal costs
- A profitable ROI for EAP services
