The EAP for state employees is a confidential service designed to assist state government employees and their immediate family members with their personal problems before the problems disrupt personal or work life. The North Carolina State EAP, provided by the Office of Personnel, can provide assistance with emotional, family, marital, relationships, stress, alcohol/drug, financial, legal, grief, elder care, medical, and other problems. The program provides assessment and referral services to assist employees in resolving problems or may link employees to community resources. The EAP also provides management consultation services to supervisors and managers, and technical assistance to state agencies and universities.
