Family Care Center vs. Employee Assistance Programs (EAP)
Our Preferred Access model for employers is not to be confused with Employee Assistance Programs:
- Most serious mental health needs tend to be outside of the scope of traditional EAP covered services
- Authorized counseling sessions are typically short in nature and limited in number of total visits under most EAP offerings.
- EAPs may be able to assist your employees with things like legal aid, consumer credit counseling, or identity theft and fraud resolution
- Family Care Center provides in-person talk therapy and medication management options that go far beyond the ability of your EAP benefits.
