The state of California offers its own EAP program to state employees. The EAP covers alcohol and drug abuse, marital and family concerns, legal matters, financial problems, grief and depression, and dependent care. The program covers the employee, the employee's spouse, and unmarried, dependent children.
One feature of the program is an online service providing information, individual and family counseling, and other resources to support employees and family members. For more information, visit the Department of Personnel Administration at http://www.dpa.ca.gov/benefits/eap.main/htm.
