Is the EAP CONFIDENTIAL?
Confidentiality is of the utmost importance; the EAP complies with all state and federal confidentiality regulations.  Before any information can be given to a supervisor, or anyone else, EAP clients must first indicate their desire for such a release by signing a written release form.  Even with a release, information to a supervisor is limited.  The utilization reports sent to Schreiner University have only blind statistics; no names are ever given.
