SCRAM Systems provides the solutions you need to manage the full range of alcohol clients in your program and reduce risks to your community. OPTIONS support best-practices by enabling courts and agencies to:
Higher-risk/higher-need alcohol clients frequently abuse alcohol, or are alcohol addicted or dependent. These clients require more intensive supervision to reduce the risk of reoffense. SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring addresses the risks of these clients by eliminating testing gaps and enforcing Sober Days. Continuous Alcohol Monitoring is also the only monitoring technology that has been empirically shown to support long-term behavior change—a key to reducing recidivism.
Lower- and mid-level alcohol clients can actually experience negative outcomes when supervision isn’t proportional for their level of offense. Over-supervision and overly-harsh penalties can interfere with the client’s job and family—two important support systems that help these clients get back on track. SCRAM Remote Breath provides an appropriate way to track sobriety in offenders who pose less of a risk to the community.
Research shows that “one-size-fits-all” alcohol programs don’t work. Effective and cost-efficient programs tailor requirements to fit each client’s needs and risks. Download our guide to learn how SCRAM Systems alcohol monitoring technologies work for the continuum of alcohol-involved clients.
SCRAMnet Optix—our integrated monitoring platform—provides programs with a powerful tool to manage their entire alcohol and location monitoring caseload in one place. View and resolve alerts, search for active and inactive clients, and access data across all SCRAM technologies from the dashboard or via the SCRAMnet Mobile officer app, allowing for seamless work between the office and field. Integrated reports and analytics graphically illustrate key program metrics in an easily shared format, giving you the data you need at your fingertips.
Higher-risk clients who demonstrate long-term compliance with SCRAM CAM can be rewarded with a step down to Remote Breath. Breath testing, following CAM, provides transitional monitoring and provides continued support to keep these clients on track once they have achieved sobriety.
In contrast, because it ensures 24/7 compliance and eliminates the need for client action, SCRAM CAM is an appropriate step-up sanction for lower-risk clients who violate breath testing with alcohol consumption or missed tests.
And because SCRAM CAM and Remote Breath are part of the SCRAM Systems suite of monitoring tools, you’ll have one integrated system for all your monitored clients and the same 24/7 Customer Support, Product Training, Court Support, and client compliance analytics that you’ve come to expect.
