Human resources generalists, as well as employee assistance program (EAP) counselors, managers, and directors, can keep abreast of the issues related to EAPs by joining a chapter of the EAPA. This association also provides guidance to employers that have not yet set up EAPs in their own companies.
There is currently one local chapter of the EAPA in New Jersey. For more information, visit the New Jersey chapter’s website at http://www.njeap.org
. Also, the Greater Philadelphia (PA) chapter (http://www.phillyeap.org
) serves the southern New Jersey area. Meanwhile, New Jersey employers may obtain information about setting up or belonging to a regional group by contacting:
