Technologies to Enhance Addiction Recovery and Mental Health Services

For Court and Legal Professionals:

Drunk driving takes a staggering toll on our society. According to a 2009 study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drunk driving is the cause of roughly 275,000 injuries and 11,000 deaths per year. Continuous Alcohol Monitoring technology is a revolutionary assessment tool that court professionals can use to determine if an individual is a risk to public safety and in need of in-patient alcohol treatment. Since its introduction in 2004, CAM technology is now supported by a broad cross-section of professionals within the NC criminal justice community as an effective tool in the state’s efforts to combat drunk driving and alcohol related crime.

CAM provides courts with a means to assess an individual’s level of alcohol dependence who is not a threat to the community when sober, and can be released under electronic supervision. This relieves the burden on jail overcrowding and keeps an otherwise compliant individual able to work, attend school or support their family.

Rehab Support is available to support your court with CAM for any situation deemed appropriate. Rehab Support is also available to bring in resources to support CAM data in the case of violation. This data has undergone the highest level of legal scrutiny and Rehab Support is prepared to provide expert testimony in any probation revocation or evidentiary hearing.

Cathy, I want to thank you and others at Rehab Support for your help while I was wearing the Scram bracelet. Your prompt response to any problems or questions I had was greatly appreciated. Also, it was a comfort to have someone nice to talk to when I called. Thanks again for your help.

P.S. I had great visit with my son!

Best Wishes,

“SCRAM has changed my life so much by being able to see how alcohol can affect your life. It has taught me a great responsibility in life in general. Such as don’t drink and drive and you can also see how you act when you are intoxicated. Thank you for the opportunity to be on SCRAM. I have learned a lot thanks to you guys.”

"Every thought was about drinking, my first thought in the morning was about drinking and I planned everything around the booze... the thought of getting beer, drinking it and getting away with it. The bracelet took the wondering and obsession out of it.   It controls what you cannot control yourself.  I just got a job, my kids don't see me passed out, my house is cleaner, we have more money and I spend more time with the kids. My skin and hair are softer!  The bracelet forced me to do what I should have been doing all along and I am actually proud of myself.   I am totally for this thing; it could really help a lot of people.  I could have gotten 30 days in jail and I would have been away from my kids. I don't know if I would have ever put it down without the bracelet.  I have not thought of it as a punishment but as my savior."

“Being monitored on CAM gave me the chance to analyze myself without alcohol. I looked at my former bad choices because of drinking. I haven’t had a drink since May and I have a renewed relationship with my family. My wife is much happier!”

“I preferred the bracelet over the “blow & go” and obviously over jail. It allowed me to continue my life and show the powers that be I was doing what I was supposed to doing.”
