Printable version

Auburn University's Employee Assistance Program is administered through American Behavioral and is available to all benefit-eligible employees with up to three free visits per year.

An EAP program is a confidential assessment, counseling, and referral service for all regular employees and their eligible dependents who need help in any of the following areas: 

  • Marital and Family Issues
  • Alcohol and Other Drug Dependency 
  • Stress-Related Issues
  • Financial/Legal Referrals
  • Emotional Problems

The counselor's role

The EAP counselor can help identify problems and assist in working through them. The counselor can also determine the best alternatives and, if necessary, make appropriate referrals to other professionals who specialize in particular areas.

The program is:

  • Confidential: All information is kept strictly between the individual and the counselor.
  • Informal: A simple phone call starts the process.
  • Free: All counseling offered within the EAP is provided as a benefit by Auburn University.
