Alcohol Cost Calculator

Alcohol Use Disorders (AUD) among employees and their family members can be an expensive problem for business, accounting for an estimated 500 million lost workdays each year and costing the U.S. economy $240 billion annually in health care, accidents, absenteeism, and lost productivity.

By investing in effective and inexpensive alcohol treatment and programs, businesses can reduce these costs and get workers the help they need. Understanding the impact on your workforce population is the first step in addressing the problem.

The Alcohol Cost Calculator uses your company’s demographics to estimate your workforce's AUD prevalence, it's cost to your bottom line, and the potential savings associated with implementing intervention programs.
