Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides a free, confidential service for all Prison employees. It is staffed by Captain John Hudson, M.H.S., an experienced EAP counselor, trained in Critical Incident Stress Debriefing. The EAP is strictly governed by federal, state, and PPS regulations that protect your right to privacy and confidential assistance. The EAP counselor helps staff to identify problems and explore various options.
Although many situations can be resolved with the help of an EAP Professional, some problems require more attention. In that case, the EAP counselor will assist staff in getting the help they need by referring them to an outside specialist such as a psychologist or other professional. Normally, the fee for service by an outside professional is covered by the employee's medical plan. The PPS however, is not responsible for any cost charged by outside professionals. For a confidential consultation, contact Captain Hudson at: 215.685.8265.
