24/7 Sobriety Monitoring Programs Resource Center

24/7 Sobriety Programs address repeat drunk driving and other alcohol-related offenses by separating participants from the root cause of their crimes: alcohol. Frequent and regular alcohol testing is at the core of the 24/7 Program model, and those who skip tests or test positive for alcohol are subject to swift and certain sanctions. 

Every single DUI client is supervised for alcohol consumption with alcohol monitoring technology like SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring and SCRAM Remote Breath to help promote compliance and accountability.

SCRAM 24/7

Built specifically to manage alcohol and drug monitoring program caseloads and workflows, SCRAM 24/7 brings together 24/7 Sobriety Program clients and testing methods into a single platform.

SCRAM has proven to be a vital supplement to the South Dakota 24/7 Sobriety Project. It offers an effective testing alternative, particularly for clients who live a significant distance from testing centers or are challenged to balance their work schedules with required testing schedules.
