In 2003, we officially launched the world’s first transdermal alcohol monitoring technology to the corrections market. By that time, our flagship product had spent 10 years in the R&D phase, marrying a revolutionary testing protocol with a long-proven method of measuring for the consumption of alcohol—transdermal testing.
In 2013, we celebrated 10 Years of Excellence, and more than 1 billion alcohol tests on criminal offenders. (That’s billion with a B.) This milestone marked a decade where we gained a lifetime of knowledge about our market, the clients we monitor, the communities we serve, and the organizations and lawmakers who work tirelessly to tackle difficult issues in the criminal justice system.
In 2013, we also leveraged our foundation of industry-leading customer service and court support, superior training tools, unparalleled software and reporting, and the strongest service provider channel in the industry, and expanded our offerings with three new monitoring technologies under the SCRAM Systems umbrella.
In 2016 and beyond, our SCRAM Systems Commitment to Excellence will continue to drive everything we do as an organization. This commitment starts at home, with our own employees, and extends to every professional, client, organization, and agency with which we work. This commitment means we deliver more than bracelets and hardware. We deliver user-focused, superior technology-based solutions that, every single day, improve the experience for both our customers and the clients they serve.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIH), over 64,000 people died from drug overdoses in 2016, more than the number of Americans killed during the entirety of the Vietnam War. While the devastating effects of opioid addiction have been well-publicized in recent years, many states continue to designate alcohol abuse as their priority.
