Family Cases

  • How much does a parent really drink?
  • How can we verify that this parent is not drinking when the kids are with them?
  • How can I prove that I am not drinking too much?

RSC’s alcohol monitoring options enable parents and children’s aid societies to develop a plan for answering these questions in a fair, respectful, and objective way.

How it Works

With Continuous Alcohol Monitoring, the parent whose alcohol consumption is at issue wears a secure anklet that tests their perspiration vapour for alcohol every 30 minutes, 24/7.

With Remote Breath testing, the parent provides breath tests on a set schedule, either multiple times every day or before, during, and after parenting time. Facial recognition confirms it is the parent providing the breath sample.

Both technologies provide multiple tests per day, do not require travel or disruption to work schedules, and provide timely results.

How it Helps

Monitoring can help a parent keep children in their care, have them returned sooner, move from supervised to unsupervised access, and take a proactive step to prove their sobriety.

We’ve heard from many parents and their lawyers how, before they found out about our programs, they were stuck in an angry stalemate or headed for a long, expensive trial. With our programs, they were able to develop a monitoring plan that suited the circumstances and made both parents feel their concerns were being addressed fairly.
