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.
