How are Employee assistance programs Implemented? 

Andrews & Associates Counseling will work directly with you to customize a program that fits the needs of your organization, whether that is through traditional counseling sessions for employees, monthly lunch-and-learn trainings, consulting with managers and supervisors on employee and organizational challenges, or all of the above. 

Andrews & Associates will prepare a proposal for you, inclusive of the services to be offered and the monthly cost of the EAP. The cost is determined by calculating the estimated utilization of the program.  



Employees should be well-informed of the program and how to access services. Employees may seek counseling services for any number of issues. Counseling services are completely confidential. The organization's leadership will not be informed of employee names. Employees are generally allowed five sessions.  


Andrews and Associates Counseling will prepare a Utilization Report at the end of the contract period to inform the organization’s management of how well the program was used by employees (i.e., cost to benefit ratio). Based on this information, the organization may opt to renew or terminate their contract with Andrews & Associates.
