Treatment planning and referrals
EAS administers the mental/behavioral health and substance abuse benefit plan. For those individuals who have health insurance benefits through PSD, EAS provides assessment, treatment planning, care coordination, and referrals to EAS network providers. EAS cannot provide a referral without an intake and assessment appointment with an EAS counselor first. Please contact EAS to set up an appointment for these services.
Mental health/substance abuse leave of absence/short term disability
For those seeking a mental health/substance abuse leave of absence and/or mental health short term disability, please contact EAS and request assistance with this process. EAS can assist you in navigating the systems while also protecting your medical privacy throughout the process.
