BCA staff can assist in designing, implementing, and advertising an EAP. BCA believes the most effective EAP’s are those designed to specifically fit the needs and culture of each client-organization. A BCA consultant will work closely with representatives of your organization to insure your EAP fits smoothly with current policies, procedures, and practices.
We believe your EAP can be a key health-care benefit to your employees and their families. In addition, a well-designed EAP can serve as an effective, cost-efficient tool in managing behavioral health costs and problem employees. Your EAP can provide a first line of defense and an appropriate response to workplace violence and substance abuse problems.
