"Styrofoam" is actually a registered trademark of the Dow Corning company however it is also used as a synonymn for extruded polystyrene rigid foam insulation.
What you need is not the product typically used for insulation, however, Dow (and other companies) make a very dense, high-modulus, polystyrene foam board capable of supporting high loads without (measurable) deformation. This allows you to add depth to a slab with very little weight.
The Dow Corning Product is called "High Load 100" - you can get more information at the Dow Corning web site - www.dow.com.
