Dear Connecticut Drug Consortium Employees and Family Members:

The Lexington Group Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides CONFIDENTIAL services to assist employees in identifying and resolving personal problems. Examples include marriage and family issues, job stress, alcohol and drug abuse, depression and other emotional problems. This confidential service also includes referral resources for legal, financial, eldercare, and childcare services. While the CT Statewide Drug & Alcohol Testing Consortium (Consortium) has no desire to interfere in your private lives, this service is offered to help you resolve any of your personal problems.

Because employee lives may be affected by problems with a spouse or other family members, this program is extended to household family members. You or your family members may contact the EAP directly at any time. No matter what your situation, any assistance you seek through the EAP is held in the strictest confidence. Involvement will not jeopardize your job security, future promotional opportunities or reputation.

The Consortium uses The Lexington Group, an Employee Assistance Program, to provide confidential EAP services to all of its employees and their families. You may call The Lexington Group 24/7 for immediate and confidential access at:

1-800-676-HELP (4357)
