Employee Assistance Program

We all have problems from time to time. And sometimes our personal issues can leave us feeling overwhelmed or can interfere with important aspects of our lives, such as our family relationships and work responsibilities. When difficulties arise, it can be very helpful to talk with a good listener — someone who is impartial and who may be able to help you find useful, new ways to approach the problems that are causing you stress.

Through EmployeeCare, the employee assistance program of Premier Community Health, you or family members within your household can receive free professional, confidential counseling on both personal and work-related problems. And if you’re an employer, we offer a wide range of services to help your workforce stay healthy, happy, and productive.

Our vision is to become the best Employee Assistance Program in Southwest Ohio. We believe that being a top choice in the region means providing valuable and outstanding quality service. Our goal is to please every customer.

EmployeeCare is an external and internal employee assistance program, with more than 145 participating companies and organizations throughout Southwest Ohio.

How We Can Help Employees

There are many kinds of personal problems that can complicate our lives, including substance abuse, emotional distress, health issues, and relationship concerns. EmployeeCare can help when:

  • Your personal problems start interfering with your job
  • You suspect a loved one of abusing drugs or alcohol
  • You feel you may be abusing or drugs or alcohol
  • You are experiencing anxiety, stress, or depression
  • You are having a hard time dealing with grief or loss
  • You are having a hard time dealing with anger
  • You are going through a divorce
  • You are dealing with aging parents
  • Your child doesn’t want to go to school
  • Your spouse loses his/her job
  • Your teenage daughter announces she is pregnant
  • Your teenage son announces he got someone pregnant
  • You have a breakdown in communication at work or at home
  • Friends and family are giving you conflicting advice about a personal problem 
  • Specialty services include:
  • Conflict management
  • Ongoing chemical dependency group for employees who need drug education, not treatment (this defrays the cost of going outside for help)

How We Can Help Employers

Not only can EmployeeCare help your employees manage life issues that may be negatively impacting their job performance, we also provide services that help employers create a safer and more productive work environment.

EmployeeCare aids employers with both on- and off-site services, including:

  • Help with employee-relation issues such as conflict management and/or suspected substance abuse
  • Critical-incident stress debriefing in the case of downsizing, an employee death, and/or issues of grief and loss
  • On-site wellness seminars
  • Training for both supervisors and staff
  • Employee orientation
  • Drug-free workplace training for supervisors and employees (we are registered through the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation to provide drug-free workplace training, even for companies not contracted for other EmployeeCare services)
  • SAP services
  • Accredited counselors offering counseling, referral, and follow-up by licensed professional counselors, certified employee assistance professionals, and substance-abuse professionals
  • A variety of training programs, seminars, and more 

We also offer employers a quarterly EmployeeCare newsletter covering related issues of interest for employers and employees.

Confidentiality

EmployeeCare is a free, confidential counseling service. We will not report employee names or the reasons for their visits to their employer.

We will not release any information about employees unless they inform us that they intend to harm themselves or someone else (mandated reporting required by the State of Ohio) or that they have violated Department of Transportation drug and alcohol policy (for commercial driver license holder).
