About

> Mission

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is dedicated to excellence in providing a standard of care that enhances the quality of life for the Civilian workforce of USAG Bavaria.
 
We believe that personal, family, and workplace problems can affect an employee's well-being and job performance.
 
EAP promotes healthy lifestyles. Our most important asset is our employees and we are committed to providing educational assistance, intervention and referral services for all of our Civilian employees, including Contractors and Local National employees, retirees, and their family members in an effort to promote wellness and improve the climate of the USAG Bavaria Civilian workforce.
 
EAP falls under the organization Army Substance Abuse Program.

What We Do

EAP services are a benefit provided by USAG Bavaria free of charge. The EAP counselor focuses on short-term problem solving and intervention.

Depending on the problem, the EAP may determine that a person may benefit from longer term assistance with a specialist in the community in which case a referral will be coordinated. In the event a referral is recommended, your EAP will assist in the appropriate referral within the parameters of your insurance coverage. Your EAP Counselor will follow us with you to determine progress and satisfaction with the referral.

All USAG Bavaria Civilian employees, Contract and Local National Civilians, Military Retirees and dependent family members are eligible for EAP services. Military members may obtain a behavioral health referral by contacting the Behavioral Health clinic on your installation.

The EAP is a confidential service. Disclosure of any information to third parties is performed only with your written consent in compliance with professional and federal confidentiality guidelines.
