Life Happens. We’re Here to Help.

What Sets EFR Apart

Already have our EAP?

24/7/365 Accessibility

You can reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Challenging situations are a part of life, which is why a masters-level clinician will always be ready to take your call.

Connect with Masters-Level Counselors

We only hire behavioral health experts with at least a master’s degree when it comes connecting through telephonic services or our website chat feature. These professionals are well-equipped to address all needs.

Expansive Provider Network

We have more than 7,000 counseling providers in our national provider network, ensuring quality assistance and services wherever you are.

We've Been Here Awhile

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.

Full-Service EAP

We offer an EAP that provides support for mental health and substance abuse challenges, while integrating wellness programming that optimizes employees’ overall well-being.

High-Touch EAP

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 Employee Assistance Program is the right thing to do for your employees and for your business.

Our EAP helps employees manage life’s challenges so they can reach their full potential on and off the job. Our focus is on helping people overcome life’s challenges; 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.

Statistically Speaking

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.

  • Divorced parents

  • Incarcerated parent
  • Physical abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Emotional abuse

Scientific research has correlated trauma with physical and mental health problems in adulthood.

 

Adults who experience 4 or more childhood traumas are more than twice as likely to experience severe health conditions, such as asthma, arthritis, COPD, stroke, or heart or kidney disease.
