Clinical Services

What Would You Do If...

... your supervisor expressed concern about poor job performance?
... you were having problems in your marriage?
... your budget was out of control?
... a family member was drinking too much?

Everyone has problems. Sometimes they get too heavy to carry alone. Talking with someone who understands can be a major step toward resolution. Organizations are concerned about their employees and recognize that work performance is affected by personal concerns. The Employee Assistance Program is designed to help employees resolve personal and workplace problems to get their lives back in order.

What Is the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)?
CHI St. Alexius Health Employee Assistance Program is a free, confidential assessment/counseling/referral service staffed by trained professionals who help individuals and families evaluate their problems and take positive action to resolve them.

How Does It Work?
Your organization provides employee assistance services to all employees and their immediate family members. Immediate family includes spouses and/or dependent children. When you or your family members contact the EAP, a professional counselor will assess your situation and provide the assistance needed to resolve it. This may include confidential contacts with the counselor or referral to a specialist who is trained in your specific area of difficulty.

All clinical services are provided in a professional and confidential manner with emphasis on improving relationships, finding solutions and developing personal effectiveness and self-esteem. We believe those who have used the program have come to trust its confidentiality and the quality of its services. Services are provided either face-to-face, over the phone or web-based.

Scheduling Appointments
Appointments are made at times convenient for employees and their families. Any eligible employee, their spouse and dependents may contact EAP at 701-530-7195 or toll free at 800-327-7195 to schedule an appointment at either our Bismarck location, one of our satellite clinics or with affiliate providers in your local area.
