Life Happens. We’re Here to Help.
We only hire behavioral health experts with at least a master’s degree when it comes to connecting through telephonic services or our website chat feature. These professionals are well-equipped to address all needs.
We have more than 7,000 counseling providers in our national provider network, ensuring quality assistance and services wherever you are.
EFR was established in 1964 by Dorothea Tone and Anna Meredith in Des Moines, Iowa. EFR has more than 50 years experience serving those who need it most, both in the local community and across the country.
We offer an EAP that provides support for all of life’s challenges, while integrating wellness programming that optimizes employees’ overall well-being.
Our dedicated account managers are driven to help our clients meet the needs of their employees by offering EAP support through frequent communication and engagement efforts.
So this is what an EAP should be. I’m SOLD!
Our EAP helps employees manage life’s challenges so they can reach their full potential on and off the job. When employees receive the help they need with struggles in and outside of work, they can better focus on their job and be more productive. Having an EAP is not only healthy for your employees, but also for your business’ bottom line.
Having an EAP is a cost-effective investment that not only improves the lives of employees, but also their performance at work. When employees have the resources available to address stressors in their personal life, they are able to focus more of their attention on their duties in the workplace and not as much on what happens when they go home.

Student Assistance Program (SAP) & Outpatient Counseling
Maddox*, an elementary-aged student, struggled with anger outbursts, physical aggression, and difficulties with problem-solving. After spending years off-and-on in therapy seeking treatment with various providers only to remark that “none seemed to want to listen,” Maddox’s parents sought SAP services through their district.
Today, Maddox is completing his SAP sessions and moving towards outpatient counseling. He has reduced his anger outbursts and has learned skills to help him successfully navigate challenging days.
