Local, personal service.

SAVE is the only local EAP program in Santa Barbara County. We build relationships with our clients. When an employee comes to us for services, they will have the same professional helping them each time they call.

Professional experience. Satisfied clients.

SAVE has been serving Santa Barbara companies for 40 years. We currently have over 30 satisfied clients in multiple industries, including food and hospitality, agriculture, health care, education, social services, and environmental services.

In just a few sessions, the SAVE counselor gave me the tools I needed to start improving my relationships at work. I have already recommended the program to several of my coworkers.
