LivingSmart | Managing Alcohol Use

Program Details

Drinking socially and professionally is a casual thing for most people, but something that used to be reserved for once in a while can creep into weekly routines before you realize it. You start to notice that it affects your life – your relationships, your ability to get things done, your health and emotions.

Binge drinking is often associated with college students and drinking to get “drunk.” However, 17 percent of US adults binge drink at least once per month. Alcohol doesn’t have to be an addiction to be a problem in the workplace. An employee that drinks excessively costs their employer $670 each year in increased health costs, lost productivity, and absenteeism. That translates into approximately $312 each day in excess costs for a company with one thousand employees.

Typical behavior modification strategies focus on the use of willpower to overcome the urge to drink but can’t address the psychological drivers that prevent current drinkers from curbing their consumption and cause ex-drinkers to fall back into old patterns. The LivingSmart alcohol management program takes a different approach.

LivingSmart focuses on changing the way participants think about drinking rather than telling them what to do to quit. Participants learn to eliminate psychological roadblocks and change their emotional relationship with alcohol, so they can quit drinking or modify their habits to drink less again. The result is genuine, lasting behavior change and a higher quality of life.
