What is an EAP (Employee Assistance Program)?

EAP stands for Employee Assistance Program. The EAP provides proactive counselling for work and personal issues, which impact on employee wellbeing. We offer direct access to a counsellor 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.


How much does it cost?

The EAP is a free service for employees, and often their immediate family members. It is a program paid for by your employer, with a set number of sessions available per person, per 12 month period.


How do I know if I am eligible for an EAP?

If your employer has an EAP, they will generally communicate this to you, or there will be promotional information around the workplace. If you are unsure who your EAP is, please ask your Human Resources department or other Management personnel.


Who will know I have used the EAP?

The Drake WorkWise EAP service is 100% confidential. Unless you request that an individual be notified by giving written consent for this, nobody will be informed of your attendance or the details. surrounding your EAP counselling.
