The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) recognizes that from time to time we all experience serious personal problems. These may include marital, financial, drug or alcohol, vocational, and stress-related difficulties. The County offers its employees and their family members help through the EAP.
The EAP is confidential and your right to privacy is strictly protected. All visits with the Employee Assistance staff are available to your spouse and/or household members and are paid for by the County. Currently the Employee Assistance Program is contracted to Pinnacle, Inc.
Almost all of us, from time to time, experience serious personal problems. These may include marital, financial, drug or alcohol, vocational, and stress related difficulties. Sometimes these problems affect our job performance, sometimes just our general well being.
The important thing is that you don't have to solve these problems alone. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a benefit provided by the County for you and your family-just for that reason—you don't have to go it alone. The Employee Assistance Program is confidential and your right to privacy is strictly protected. Up to six visits with the Employee Assistance staff are paid for by the County and are available to your spouse and/or household members.
Help is as simple as a phone call. You or a family member can call and speak with one of the counselors, who will schedule an appointment.
The County of Henrico considers its employees a valuable resource and knows how important your family is to you. When you or a family member are experiencing problems, please give PINNACLE a call. Your wellbeing and that of your family are their first consideration.
