Eastern Kentucky


Onsite Success Coaching

The core of the ERN model is onsite confidential Success Coaching that employees can access on a predictable, ongoing basis - no more wasted hours in social services offices. Success Coaches offer direct connection to community resources for any challenges they are facing at work or at home. Employees who face a crisis from lack of resources can get immediate, personal relief at the workplace. Training and advanced education for work-based skills or life skills can be focused goals along with barrier reduction. Services are available to all ERN member employees. Success Coaches accommodate all shifts with off-site locations and alternate meeting times available upon request.



The Eastern Kentucky Addiction Recovery and Training (eKART) program is designed to bridge the gulf between recovery and workforce participation for individuals active in their recovery from substance use issues.

eKART is available to individuals recovering from addiction within EKCEP’s 23-county service area. eKART provides valuable career, training, and supportive services, while actively cultivating meaningful job opportunities. This project also provides services to Kentucky employers and partners with a full array of training, technical assistance, case management, and support services necessary to assist current employees and persons in recovery who are seeking (re)employment and training.
