Sand Creek EAP is a problem-solving resource available to you and eligible members of your family. A professional counselor will help you assess your situation, identify options, make choices, and get additional help.

The Duluth Entertainment Convention Center pays for the initial assessment, the problem solving sessions, and referral services. Each person has access to up to 4 sessions, per issue, per year.  If more counseling or treatment is needed, your counselor will help you figure out your options.

Your EAP is set up with Sand Creek, an outside counseling resource, to ensure confidentiality. No one at work knows anything beyond what you choose to tell them.  Nothing about your use of EAP appears in your employee personnel file.

Your EAP is as close as your phone.  The confidential intake process sets up face-to-face sessions with a licensed counselor near your work or home.  Phone counseling services are also available.

Your know your life best, so contacting the EAP is only by your choice.  A manager or co-worker might suggest you contact the EAP if you’ve talked about a complex problem with them, or they notice something is troubling you.  But the decision to contact the EAP is always yours.


Contact for services may be initiated by calling 218-481-7477 or 844-678-5710 or by visiting online at

Calls are answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week for crisis services.  Counseling, coaching, and consultation services with a professional counselor are available in person or via the telephone, or by video or chat.

Appointments with a counselor can be scheduled at a location convenient for you or your family member near where you work or live throughout the United States and beyond.
