New Employee Assistance Program provider

We are pleased to announce that as of July 1, 2020, our new Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provider is Deer Oaks EAP Services. As a reminder, the EAP covers up to six (6) confidential short-term counseling sessions per person, per presenting issue, per calendar year.

Benefit-eligible employees and their household members are entitled to this benefit, at no cost to the employee. Deer Oaks EAP has considerable expertise and clinical knowledge possessed by its network of providers at numerous convenient locations near you. Session options include face-to-face, telephonic and video.

Deer Oaks will assist you with many different types of issues. Among these might be stress, depression, anxiety, workplace difficulties, substance abuse, marital problems, family or parenting conflicts, grief, violence and unhealthy lifestyles. The EAP will also provide additional assistance, tools and referrals for:

  • Work/Life Resources with Referrals
  • Financial and Legal Issues
  • Interactive Online Simple Will & Trust

All callers looking to access counseling services will receive a telephonic assessment to ensure that short-term, solution-focused counseling is appropriate. If short-term services are not appropriate, Deer Oaks will coordinate with LLCC’s health insurance plans, for those who participate, for cases that require treatment under your health insurance benefit.
