Arkansas Employee Assistance Program
Everyone has problems at one time or another. Problems, like people, come in all sizes, types, intensities, and can come at any time. Problems sometimes start small, but can grow and spread to other areas of a person’s life, threatening a marriage, a career or both. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) consultation service provides assessment, short-term counseling, information and referral (if indicated) for employees (including their spouses and dependents) who experience some form of personal distress. Services are confidential.
The goal of AR-Connect is to help those Arkansans needing immediate care get the assistance they need and eventually connect them with treatment options available in their local area. 24/7 care for all Arkansans.AR-Connect
