Employee Assistance Program

If your employee needs assistance, Avail Solutions EAP offers a quick response from a professional counselor, off-site counseling and access to a crisis line 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Services are confidential. No identifying information concerning utilization or emotional issues will be released without prior written consent.
