SCRAM Providers in Orange County

SCRAM Providers in Orange County

SCRAM stands for “Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor”.

Orange County DUI cases where a prior (or more than one prior – that is, a second DUI or higher) is alleged often have the option of wearing a SCRAM ankle bracelet in exchange for lower jail time.  Orange County Judges like SCRAM, as it ensures sobriety and addresses the underlying issue or problem better than jail does. This is a list of SCRAM Providers in Orange County.

The SCRAM device is an ankle bracelet that a DUI offender wears around his/her ankle. The SCRAM bracelet tests the DUI offender’s sweat for alcohol about once per hour, silently. The SCRAM device then wirelessly transmits the results at least once per day via the SCRAM Modem.

The SCRAM device is an example of “transdermal alcohol testing.” Alcohol in the body is eliminated from the body either through metabolism or through excretion (via the breath, urine, sweat and saliva). About 1% of the ingested alcohol escapes the body through “insensible perspiration,” an imperceptible ethanol vapor that passes through the skin as a sweat vapor.

A SCRAM bracelet / anklet detects this alcohol and reports it automatically to a monitoring center.

The SCRAM device weighs about 8 ounces.  SCRAM allows for continuous testing regardless of the location of the person under supervision, which increases the sampling detection.

In Multiple Offense Orange County DUI Cases, a SCRAM bracelet can help by creating an alternative to jail time, by promising sobriety, and using the SCRAM device to ensure sobriety is complied with.
