4170.01 - EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (EAP)

The School Board believes that early recognition and treatment of alcohol or drug abuse is important for successful rehabilitation, return to productive work, and reduced personal, family, and social disruption.

The Corporation encourages the earliest possible diagnosis and treatment for alcoholism and drug abuse and supports sound treatment efforts. Whenever feasible, and subject to the limitations described here, the Corporation will assist staff members in overcoming their alcohol or drug abuse problems. However, the decision to seek diagnosis and accept treatment for alcohol or drug abuse is primarily the individual staff member's responsibility.

Self-Referral

Staff members with personal alcohol or drug abuse problems should request assistance from insurance trust or an administrator. Assistance will be provided on a confidential basis, and each staff member will be referred to the appropriate treatment and counseling services. Staff members who, in dealing with alcohol or drug abuse problems, voluntarily request assistance through the EAP may do so without jeopardizing their continued employment with the Corporation subject to compliance with Board Policy 4122.01 - Drug-Free Workplace.
