EAP & Peer Advocacy Support
Our Skilled Labor Professionals Program is an extension of our Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The primary goal in EAP is to help an employee overcome addiction using a treatment center instead of just firing them. Furthermore, the program teaches many skills that allow clients to keep their job and become a valuable member in the workforce. Through SLP patients in a rehabilitation center can keep their current job using outpatient treatment as their preferred method to overcome substance abuse. Our outpatient treatment program allows clients to receive treatment at home or a sober-living environment while maintaining daily responsibilities. With informed consent from clients our staff and counselors work collaboratively with EAP and HR departments to coordinate patient’s ability to work.
