Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program provides up to five free consultation visits per family to assist you or your family in dealing with personal problems which may be too difficult to resolve alone.  Services are provided through GuidanceResources.

When a problem or issue is negatively affecting you – whether it’s at home, your relationships with coworkers, job performance or satisfaction, or your general well being – help is available from GuidanceResources.  This program deals with a broad range of life issues including, but not limited to:
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Balancing work and family
  • Relationship or family difficulties
  • Grief and Loss
  • Substance Abuse
  • Dealing with aging parent(s)
  • Anger Management
  • Legal & Financial Assistance

What are the benefits & costs?

The EAP provides up to 5 free counseling sessions per issue per employee as well as his/her household family members.  (If it is determined that you will need to seek ongoing assistance, GuidanceResources will work with you and your Albemarle County health benefits to refer you to an in-network provider, if applicable.)

Is the EAP confidential?

Your privacy is assured.  Discussions with an EAP counselor are confidential and protected to the full extent of the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

You may contact GuidanceResources 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.
