While SCRAM CAM technology has been used in the United States for over 25 years, it is now global with thriving international markets. The revolutionary science that propelled the devices to popularity in the US has taken over the United Kingdom, Australia and other countries around the world. In the United Kingdom, London was a pioneer in implementing alcohol monitoring device requirements for repeat alcohol offenders. The court began introducing the program to address the underlying issues of addiction and dependency. Beyond the United Kingdom, SCRAM is also used in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
SCRAM CAM technology works by testing alcohol that is excreted through the skin. The bracelet is worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for a given monitoring period. During that time, the participant is tested for alcohol consumption every 30 minutes. The device can be worn under most pant legs without detection. The science behind the technology is peer-reviewed and court approved. Alcohol monitoring has helped numerous people achieve sobriety and end the vicious cycle of repeat drunk driving incidents or domestic abuse where alcohol is involved.
