THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Archbold Memorial Hospital is seeing some growth in its Employee Assistance Program. 

The EAP offers counseling and other services to not only hospital employees but local businesses as well.

Employers purchase the service in advance and employees can use the program to receive help regarding personal matters they're facing.

The director of the program says they've seen an increase of clients seeking financial counseling and other stress related issues.

 "An increase that we have seen has been supervisors requiring employees to come see us because of conflicts that they've had with employees. Or supervisors that are referring employees that have been rude or non-responsive to their customers" , says Tony Chapman, Archbold EAP Director.

Archbold EAP offers training seminars and stress management classes in addition to one on one counseling.
