What is EAP?
The Employee Assistance Program provides help to Nassau County employees and their families who may be having problems that interfere with daily living and functioning in the work place.  These problems may concern relationships, money matters, job-related stressors, chemical abuse, grief and loss, emotional and/or psychiatric disorders.

Will it take long to get an appointment?

What if I don’t want anyone to know I went to EAP?
All services provided at EAP are strictly confidential.  EAP must abide by the state and federal regulations of confidentiality.
