Employee Assistance Program
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
is designed to help with problems related to substance abuse, marital and family issues, financial or legal concerns, and job stress and other personal problems.
The EAP provides confidential, short-term, solution-focused counseling (usually 4 – 6 sessions) for employees and families. For longer-term counseling needs, a referral is made to appropriate resources within the community. Your needs are matched with the most appropriate and most cost-effective resources and are coordinated with your health insurance coverage.
Family Services Associates (FSA) is Colgate’s EAP provider. FSA is the largest integrated out-patient provider of mental health and substance abuse services in Onondaga County with offices in Liverpool, Syracuse, and DeWitt. Colgate employees and their families may be seen at any of the above locations or at their satellite location in Hamilton at 58B Utica Street. Please call 315-451-2161 for a free, confidential appointment.
