Employee Assistance Program
The Department of Developmental Services realizes that at some point in their career a number of employees may have personal or health concerns that can cause problems in their lives at home or at work.  Recognizing this, the Department provides and strongly supports the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).  The goal of the program is to provide easy access to professional help so that employees can address their problems in the early stages before they become more difficult to manage.  The program is free and available to employees and their family members.  If you think you or a family member might need help in dealing with a personal problem, you can access the DDS program provider, Total Care EAP is a division of ESI Group, by clicking on the link above.  To login to "member services" from Total Care EAP a division of The ESI Group web site, www.theEAP.com employees and family members just need to enter CTDDS and create your own USERNAME and PASSWORD.  You can also contact them at their nationwide toll free number, 1-800-225-2527 or 1-800-22-4555.
