Chief Commercial Officer at Monument

Last week, our team had the honor of hosting Dan Erstad, Chief Commercial Officer at Monument, for an enlightening session. Dan shared insights into Monument’s online alcohol therapy program, aimed at fostering healthier and happier lives for employees.

The growing impact of unhealthy alcohol use on employers

  • 1 in 11 full-time workers meet the diagnostic criteria for alcohol use disorder (AUD)
  • 232 million workdays missed annually
  • ~$15,000 annual healthcare cost per employee with AUD
  • $179 billion lost by US employers annually
  • Alcohol affects heart health, liver function, sleep quality, and more

Despite the magnitude of this issue, only 1 in 20 individuals affected by AUD receives the treatment they need.

Introducing Monument

Monument offers a transformative treatment program designed to empower individuals to redefine their relationship with alcohol, whether through sobriety or moderation. Their program is distinguished by its:

  • 100% virtual accessibility: Removing barriers to access with online-based therapy and support.
  • Insurance coverage: Making treatment affordable and accessible to all.

Monument believes that achieving a healthier relationship with alcohol is an achievable goal worth celebrating. By providing evidence-based care through a combination of pharmacology, psychotherapy, and peer support, Monument is at the forefront of addressing AUD.
