Our EAP was spearheaded by the County Administrator Bob Christiansen to provide a confidential and professional counseling option for the people who work for Chaffee County.
Your information is considered privileged and legally confidential protected by HIPPA and Federal Law. Chaffee County does not want to know the names of its workers who utilize services. Identity is protected through the billing process by a random computer-generated client ID.
We're here to help Chaffee County be a wonderful place to live and work.
Three sessions are paid for by the EAP fund. Two more sessions can be paid for by the Chaffee County Wellness Program if the client has shown progress and wishes to continue with additional counseling.
Individual and Family/Couples Psychotherapy services are eligible. Therefore spouses and children of employees can receive EAP services as well.
Issues addressed through the EAP are not limited to something affecting workplace performance. Any personal, professional, or family issue is welcomed.
Issues people have sought EAP counseling for have ranged from anxiety, grief & loss, depression, substance misuse, parenting a hard-to-reach teenager to career management and planning, leadership struggles with subordinates, and adjusting to Chaffee county after relocating.
