Human resources generalists, as well as employee assistance professional (EAP) counselors, managers, and directors, can keep abreast of the issues related to EAPs by joining a chapter of the EAPA. These groups also provide guidance to employers that have not yet set up employee assistance programs in their own companies.
There are currently three local chapters of the EAPA available to Louisiana employers. The Greater New Orleans chapter has its own website at http://www.eapagno.org
. Contact information for the Acadian and the Ark-La-Tex chapters is available on the EAPA website at: http://www.eapa.info
Louisiana employers may obtain information about setting up or belonging to a regional group by contacting:
