HISTORY

Employee Assistance Program (EAP) / Employee Life Assistant (ELA) has been traced back to the late 1930's with the beginning formation of programs dealing with occupational alcoholism. During a time when drinking on the job was the norm, it also began to affect job performance and productivity. This would become a major issue for the industrial industry and would become the main focus for correction with job-based alcoholism programs. By 1939, the AA movement had begun to spread throughout the Midwestern and Northeastern United States. People in “recovery" began to eagerly share their experiences with other workers. This would be the start of the EAP/ELA movement. Businesses also began to see the effectiveness of the programs with the rehabilitation of their workers and the rise of production. The thought then began what other types of problems this program could help.
