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.
With testing protocols set every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day, SCRAM CAM is a primary monitoring method in 24/7 Sobriety Programs.

Insight also provides dynamic analytics and reporting tools to assess program and client progress.
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.– Larry Long, Former South Dakota Attorney General
