SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring FAQs

Can I workout while wearing the SCRAM CAM Bracelet? 

Yes, the SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring bracelet can be worn during exercise with the exception of complete water immersion such as swimming.  Nothing can be worn between the device and your skin.  The device is water-resistant, profuse sweating will not affect the band.

Will other people be able to tell that I am wearing the device?

The device can be worn discreetly under most pants.  The device makes a small buzzing sound every 30 minutes as it “tests” for alcohol consumption.  The sound is usually only detectable to the wearer.

Can I take a bath while wearing the alcohol monitoring bracelet?

No, the device cannot be completely submerged in water.  Therefore, any activity that requires the ankle to be completely submerged in water is off limits including bath tubs, swimming and hot tubs.  Participants are able to shower while wearing the device.

How much alcohol can I drink while wearing the device?

The SCRAM CAM bracelet requires complete sobriety during the monitoring period.  This means that the device will detect any alcohol consumption.  If you were court ordered to wear the device, any positive tests showing consumption of alcohol could be a violation of your probation.

 Can I voluntarily wear the bracelet?

Yes, the SCRAM bracelet can be court ordered as a condition of your release or of your sentencing or it can be worn voluntarily.  The device helps to keep people accountable to their sobriety.
