Alcohol Monitoring

Continuous Transdermal Alcohol Monitoring (CAM) with SCRAM is based on more than 70 years of research and 22 peer-reviewed studies. Currently used in thousands of courts across 49 states, CAM is broadly accepted as an integral part of alcohol monitoring programs across the country. LCA has provided effective continuous alcohol monitoring programs (CAM) for thousands of arrested
drunk drivers throughout California, both pretrial and sentenced since 2003.

CAM is the only reliable method to determine if participant is using alcohol.

How does Alcohol Monitoring work?

LCA's continuous alcohol monitoring (CAM) programs test for alcohol
every 30 minutes, using the same proven technology as a breathalyzer.

• Data is analyzed and reviewed for drinking events and equipment tampering.
• Reports are emailed or faxed to the court, attorneys and probation.

Why Order alcohol Monitoring?

CAM programs increase sentencing options and enable courts to:
