Purpose

The DCCCD Commitment …

DCCCD realizes that unresolved personal problems may adversely impact an employee’s job performance at all levels of responsibility. Problems solved today prevent bigger problems tomorrow. The majority of problems facing individuals and families arise through difficulties of daily living.

Deer Oaks' Employee Assistance Program is a benefit provided by DCCCD to its employees at no cost to the employee.

Deer Oaks offers a multidisciplinary team of trained psychologists, social workers, psychological associates, psychiatric nurses and licensed professional counselors trained to assist employees with behavioral health difficulties. Some of the potential benefits of an EAP include:

  • Enhance the productivity of employees and the company
  • Decrease absenteeism, turnover and workplace conflicts
  • Enhance the level of morale and well-being of employees
  • Arrive at workplace changes which are in the organization’s and the employee’s best interests
  • Provide a source of support, training, information and appropriate referrals to assist employees in managing their stress more adaptively
  • Reduce unnecessary utilization of health benefits, thereby reducing overall health care costs for the employer and employee
