Hours & Directions

In 1974, a group of concerned employers and labor leaders in St. Joseph County began meeting to discuss ways to help employees experiencing personal difficulties. Alcohol and Addictions Resource Center, an affiliate of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, and a leader in the development of employee assistance programs, set up Labor Management Services (LMS). LMS was the first provider of employee assistance program services in the state of Indiana. LMS was renamed the Michiana Employee Assistance Program in 1984 and continues to operate services under the auspices of AARC.
