Happy Birthday, EAP

11/10/2008 - On Nov. 12, the USPS Employees Assistance Program will turn 40 years old. The first postal EAP program, which was then known as the Program for Alcoholic Recovery (PAR), opened its doors in San Francisco to assist postal employees. From those humble beginnings, the postal EAP has grown into a state-of-the art, award-winning program. The EAP is now a free, voluntary, and confidential program that offers assessment, referral, short-term counseling, and work/life consultation to postal employees and their families.
