Sober 24 program

Sober 24 Logo


The Sober 24 program is a twenty four hour, seven day a week monitoring program in which a participant submits to the testing of their blood, breath, urine, or other bodily substances in order to determine the presence of alcohol, marijuana, or any controlled substance in their body. The program can be used both pretrial and post-conviction.

The goal of Sober 24 is to combat the role that alcohol and drug abuse play in crime and criminal recidivism, particularly for drunk driving and drugged driving and to reduce the number of DUIs and related costs by motivating offenders to change their behaviors.
