From our Instagram today:

People ask us why we don't use the word "alcoholic" or "addict" at Monument. And it's because we believe you are not defined by your drinking habits. Perhaps you have a condition called alcohol use disorder, or "AUD." Which is a condition the same way heart disease is. Perhaps stressful times have resulted in more happy hours than feel good to you. Perhaps alcohol simply doesn't serve you anymore, and you want some support creating distance. Whatever it is, your drinking is not who you are, it is something you do, and if you want to, can change.
