24/7 Program in North Dakota

What is the 24/7 Sobriety Program?

The statewide program provides an alternative to jail time for those charged with or convicted of drunk driving or other alcohol related offenses. Our program mimics the successful program in place in South Dakota, one that has proven to lower DUI arrests for repeat offenders.

For two or more DUI charges, offenders in North Dakota are required to participate in monitoring for alcohol use along with anyone caught drinking and driving under 18, even for a first offense.


Enrolees must meet the following conditions:

* Sobriety testing twice per day, seven days per week. The breath tests will be held at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
* Urine testing and drug patch testing.
* Electronic monitoring, including home surveillance and remote electronic alcohol monitoring.
* Defendant pays for the program. This includes fees for alcohol testing, urine testing, drug patch testing, installation and deactivation fees for remote monitoring devices, and remote electronic monitoring daily fees.
* No alcohol and no bars.


Those who violate the program are taken back in for questioning and possible termination. This is handled by a parole officer assigned to the case. Violators may be imprisoned or face other penalties, depending on the terms of their case.

Some of the ways violations can occur:

* Any positive tests for drugs or alcohol
* Evidence of an attempt to tamper with the monitoring equipment
* Failure to appear for a scheduled test

With such strict guidelines in place, you may wonder why anyone would accept them. But the choice between meeting these restrictions and going to jail isn't a hard one to make. Those who participate in the program can continue to work and live life fairly normally - as long as they maintain sobriety. And that's the point.
