The FirstHealth Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is arranged by FirstHealth of the Carolinas and external employers as a valuable benefit to employees and close family members.

The EAP is designed to help you and your family with personal problems that may be too large or complex for you to handle alone. Sometimes these problems can interfere with your ability to be successful at work.
