A telephone survey was conducted between October 1992 and March 1993 of a stratified random sample of 3204 employers with 50 or more employees as part of a larger study on Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs). This portion of the study showed that approximately one-third of these companies had EAPs, 81.15 of which were internal, 16.7% internal, and 2.6% both internal and external. The mean and median costs were $26.59 and $21.84 for internal programs and $21.47 and $18.09 for external programs, respectively.
