Recovery Science Corporation builds compliance monitoring programs that assist in the criminal and family justice systems.

Canadian judges and justices of the peace are increasingly accepting alcohol and GPS monitoring as a risk-management tool while applying the legal test to decide whether an individual will be released on bail.

Recovery Science Corp. offers seminars and free case consultations throughout Canada, as it educates agencies, counsel, mediators and the courts in the use of monitoring technologies, and helps to create plans on a case-by-case basis.

In the criminal justice system, Recovery Science Corp. offers SCRAM Systems alcohol monitoring, as well as GPS and radio frequency monitoring, remote breath testing, and drug testing for use in pre-trial and bail plans of supervision, conditional sentences, probation, parole and peace bonds.

As a mitigating factor on sentencing, offenders have worn the SCRAM device for a period of time prior to sentencing to demonstrate a commitment to accountability and to provide an objective record of sobriety.

In family and child-protection matters, the SCRAM bracelet or remote breath testing can assist lawyers with custody and access matters, child protection and treatment support.
