Member Assistance Program

The Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers’ Member Assistance Program (MAP) provides confidential telephone crisis intervention, referral and information services to BAC members in the U.S. and Canada.

MAP provides members with a place to turn for help in coping with personal problems that interfere with job performance or home life. MAP services are offered at no cost to active and retired union members and their families. Members’ privacy is fully protected.

Campaign Highlight

Anti-Opioid-Abuse Campaign

Opioid abuse has found its way into the construction industry, and BAC members are at a disproportionately high risk for developing an opioid dependence. MAP is committed to combating the devastating consequences of this epidemic through our Anti-Opioid-Abuse Campaign.

How MAP Works

Active and retired union members and their families may call toll-free to speak confidentially to MAP’s licensed mental health professionals at 1-888-880-8222. Calls are generally accepted from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time Monday through Friday. While many calls are answered immediately, if clinical staff members are responding to another call, you are given the option to leave a confidential voicemail message for a return call.

With the member’s permission, clinical staff members do the legwork on behalf of the member by contacting insurance representatives and locating community referrals uniquely tailored to an individual’s specific situation and needs. MAP also assists uninsured members to connect with services.

Topics

Similar to an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), MAP provides help to resolve the challenges and anguish that arise from a variety of concerns. Such issues may include: stress, depression, addiction, domestic violence, workplace harassment/violence, retirement concerns, cost of prescriptions, financial crisis, joblessness, homelessness, interpersonal relations, trauma and grief, terrorism and natural disasters, suicide prevention, employment-related drug testing, and DWI/DUI or substance-related legal problems.

Contact MAP

MAP generally is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday. Members call the main toll-free number for the BAC (1-888-880-8222), and then just ask for MAP. If the live operator is unavailable, members can press “O” to leave a private, confidential message for a return phone call from the MAP professional. Messages received after 8 p.m. EST and on weekends are generally returned the next business day. While the MAP professional answers many calls immediately, it may be necessary to leave a message if the MAP professional is currently assisting another member. Every effort will be made to return your call promptly. Please be sure to leave your phone number including area code.
