  • The EAP coordinator will meet with you in person or by phone to assess your situation, provide you with referrals to community resources, and follow up with you to see how you are doing and if you need any additional assistance.
  • If you have any questions, or need immediate assistance, contact the EAP Main Office at 800-822-0244.
