With nearly 105 participants at any given time, Cascade County’s drug treatment courts are the largest in Montana. Each has available to them SCRAM Systems’ alcohol and location monitoring technologies—SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring® (SCRAM CAM®), SCRAM Remote Breath®, and SCRAM GPS®—to ensure cooperation and true behavior change throughout the individual’s rehabilitative process.

Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate in the U.S. As a result, jail overcrowding has become a serious issue throughout the state, burdening local court systems and communities. But one parish is offering a solution—utilizing SCRAM Systems’ state-of-the-art alcohol monitoring technologies to focus on comprehensive rehabilitation as part of a pretrial diversion program.
Funding challenges are usually the main reason courts and jurisdictions hesitate to add intensive alcohol and location monitoring into their programs. However, daily monitoring fees are a fraction of the cost of incarceration and electronic monitoring can help improve program and client outcomes and save money over time.
