EAS - For Employees
Everyone at some time is faced with personal problems. In most cases, we are able to resolve them, but sometimes we or a family member needs some help.
Aspirus Employee Assistance Services is available for stress management, household or marital problems, alcohol or other drug abuse, emotional or behavioral difficulties or personal conflicts.
The employee is the individual who works for a company that has contracted with Aspirus Employee Assistance Services (EAS) to provide services. In addition to the employee, individuals who live with the employee may utilize this program for short-term counseling services.
Eligibility for Services
- Employee (full or part-time).
- A household member who lives with an employee.

State and Federal laws prevent Aspirus EAS from disclosing clinical information or identifying any client without his/her consent in writing. Our written consent form specifies exactly what information can be disclosed, to whom, for what reason, and the time period that the release is effective. This assures that the client agrees to any disclosure about them. Any release can be cancelled by you at any time.
