SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring

DUI Accountability and Compliance With SCRAM CAM

SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring is a bracelet that combines 24/7 transdermal alcohol testing with optional house arrest monitoring in one device. Designed for high-risk, repeat DUI, drunk driving, and other alcohol offenders in Oklahoma, the SCRAM system and program is the world’s most widely used and trusted 24/7 transdermal alcohol testing system on the market today.

  • Standalone alcohol monitoring or CAM with home curfew monitoring at the flip of a switch
  • Eliminates testing gaps—no ability to miss a test or drink around testing schedules
  • Goes where the client goes—no transportation to a testing center
  • Studies show CAM is most effective for offenders assessed with alcohol dependence or addiction
  • Works well in conjunction with treatment to enforce compliance and better identify when intervention may be needed

“I had the device on for almost a year and I am so grateful that I had it on. It was like a guardian angel.”
