The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a helpful resource that can be used to address life’s challenges, solve personal problems or tackle work-related issues. These may include marital, financial, drug or alcohol, vocational and stress-related difficulties. This service is available to full-time and part-time eligible employees and their household members free of charge to you, as a benefit paid by HCPS.
The Employee Assistance Program is contracted to Optima EAP. Services are provided by the skilled, professional counselors of Optima EAP. They will help you sort through your problems and explore possible solutions. Help is as simple as a phone call away. You or a family member can call and speak with one of the counselors, who will schedule an appointment.
The EAP is confidential and your right to privacy is strictly protected. No information about the nature of your personal situation is shared with your employer.
For your convenience, there are several office locations throughout the Richmond area. A member of the Optima EAP staff is available to help you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year. You may contact Optima EAP at 757-363-6777 or 800-899-8174 to schedule an appointment.
