Exit Survey

Since 2009, SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring clients have had the option to complete a Participant Exit Survey at the completion of their time in the program. As of November 2015, 18,604 SCRAM CAM clients had completed the survey. All survey results are completely confidential and anonymous.

The intent is to compile data in order to help us better evaluate the impact of SCRAM CAM programs and better understand the perspectives of program participants. The surveys also give clients an opportunity to provide an open-ended message about their experiences.

The Voices of SCRAM CAM Clients

“This program helped me stay sober and connect with  my daughter again.”

“I'd be homeless if I didn't have this on.  My family would not have gave me a chance without this.  This is the counselor telling you not to do it.”

“This is a great program. I would use this program for much longer if it was free of charge. I have been a drinker for over 30 years and this is the longest I have been sober in quite some time. I am going to continue to remain sober after this experience.”

“Thank you SCRAM, you changed my life”

“I could enjoy myself without having to drink. I always thought I had to drink to have a good time.”
