How the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) works

For immediate EAP assistance, call 1-800-409-3687. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

When you find that you need help with a situation that disrupts your family life or negatively affects job performance, reach out to the EAP (also known as BP Care, Your Employee Assistance and Work Life Program) for help. The EAP’s Work-Life Consultants and referrals for care can help you and the members of your household lead healthier and more productive lives. The program is completely voluntary and confidential.

The EAP is provided at no cost to you and any members of your household, regardless of relationship or whether the person qualifies as an eligible dependent under the BP Medical Program. You do not have to participate in any other BP benefits to access information and services provided by the EAP. You and all of your household members are automatically enrolled in the EAP once you begin your BP employment.

BP Care offers two ways to get help and information — by phone or online. BP Care can provide you with assistance or referrals for assistance in a wide range of areas that may be causing problems in your work or home life, including:
