Serving our nation in a military capacity is one of the most patriotic things a person can do – but it is not without its challenges for the service member and his or her family: Pre-deployment planning, family separation issues, money management, spouse employment, stress, parenting and child care, relocation, reunion and reacclimation and, all too often, grief. Returning service members face the challenge of reintegration in the family, the workplace, the community. Some will face the special challenges of coping with physical or psychological wounds, such as PTSD.

"ESI is the best EAP program I have worked with. I made the move to ESI with a previous employer over 5 years ago and was continually impressed with their support, resources, and response time. When I became employed at the Co-op, one of the first things I did was move the Co-op to ESI for EAP resources. The resources available to staff and their families is in excess of any other EAP. I highly recommend the ESI Team!"

Mary Saritelli, Director of Human Resources
Co-op Food Stores

"The EAP program has been so beneficial to our staff that we now include their video introducing the program to our new hire’s first day of Orientation. Our ESI representative, Karen, is wonderful. She is responsive to our questions and has graciously been the speaker at a recent All Staff Meeting to continue to spread the word about the benefits of EAP. I cannot say enough good things about our experience with ESI and highly recommend them."

Lori O’Connor, Human Resources Generalist

"ESI is above and beyond the best Employee Assistance Program that I have worked with. They provide an abundance of very useful materials along with a wealth of educational and training resources which our company has been increasingly utilizing and finding exceptionally beneficial. Karen Allen is so proactive and consistently keeping us abreast of changes, new offerings, as well as support and data usage reporting. I highly recommend ESI, you won’t be disappointed."
