Program Description

The Problem:

DWI cases are increasingly common, and individuals are putting themselves and others at a risk by driving while intoxicated.

Our Solution:

Monitor clients through the SCRAM CAM bracelet in order to deter clients from drinking, encourage compliance with court orders, and enforce accountability.

How We Do it:

The SCRAM CAM bracelet is an automated 24/7 transdermal test for alcohol consumption that captures readings every 30 minutes by sampling the insensible perspiration collected from the air above the skin.  The bracelet is placed on program participants who have an open DWI case and who have been mandated by the court to complete a minimum of 30 days of monitoring.  Typically participants are in the program for 90-180 days, but sometimes longer depending on compliance or other court mandates.  Program participants meet with SCRAM staff weekly to submit the bracelet’s reading so staff can identify any alerts regarding consumption or other violations.  Thus, complete accountability is ensured from the participant.
