  • In an emergency, a counselor can be available within minutes. If necessary, a face-to-face appointment will be arranged to stabilize the situation.
  • Participants are eligible for a maximum of six, face-to-face visits per year.

Obtaining services starts with a phone call


• 24-hour helpline
• 7 days a week, 365 days a year

How it works

  1. Obtaining IUEAP services starts with a phone call: 888-234-8327 or 317-962-2622.
  2. A qualified and caring EAP professional will make an initial assessment and help to determine how IUEAP may help.
  3. A referral may be made to either an EAP network-licensed clinician for face-to-face problem-solving visits or to a local agency or resource.
  4. If a problem requires long-term care or clinical services beyond the scope of IUEAP, a counselor will help identify appropriate resources, including referral to a mental health or substance abuse professional.
