Employee Assistance Program
Baptist Health Lexington offers an EAP to help employees deal with problems such as stress, drug and alcohol addictions, family relationships and other issues.
What is an EAP?
An EAP is a service designed to help employees learn to deal more effectively with emotional issues and problems of daily living. This kind of program provides employees with access to trained counselors who are skilled in helping people with situations that can affect each of us: death, anxiety, financial worries, concerns about aging family members and drug and alcohol problems. EAP counselors can help employees work out solutions to their problems during visits to the EAP office or can assist in connecting them with other trained professionals and community services when additional services are required.
When should I use the EAP?
Use the EAP when you have personal problems that are interfering with your peace of mind and your ability to work and/or enjoy your time away from work. Everyone has these kinds of concerns at times and can benefit from having a trained and objective person to talk with.
Who is eligible?
Central Baptist Hospital employees who are non-temporary (both full time and part time) and their spouses and immediate dependents are eligible to use EAP services.
Will anyone else know I have used the EAP?
All EAP sessions are confidential. Your sessions will be documented and all records will be filed in the EAP office. No one will be allowed to review your file or discuss your treatment without your consent
