Understand your options
Check with local providers on the feasibility of offering a formal, confidential Employee Assistance Program (EAP) in your workplace. If you have a program in place already, remind employees how to use it and that it is completely confidential. Invite a representative from your EAP to speak to employees about just how easy it is to get help.
If a formal, structured EAP is too costly for your workplace, first consider the expense of a drug or alcohol-related accident. If it still seems too expensive, explore online offerings and other options for helping employees confidentially.
