[Case Study] Cascade County Treatment Courts Address Alcohol Offenses and Help Rebuild Lives

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. To support these programs, Judge Gregory G. Pinski has personally undertaken the responsibility of securing $2.1 million in public and private grants, supplying his courts with the resources necessary to grow.

To manage its high-risk, high-need population, Cascade County uses electronic monitoring to hold clients more accountable for their choices and actions—data from the program shows that 97.4% of SCRAM CAM clients are sober and compliant and 94% of Remote Breath tests are taken and passed on time.

Through a compassionate approach and state-of-the-art monitoring technology, Cascade County’s drug treatment courts ensure clients receive the treatment they need as they start to rebuild their life.
