Sleeptime Monitoring


24 Hour / 7day a Week Alcohol and Other

Q1. Why use SLEEPTIME™?

SLEEPTIME™ makes detection of abuse of alcohol and many other drugs efficient, accurate, and economical. SLEEPTIME™ allows the participant to engage in normal activities while being monitored for alcohol and other drug use 24 hours a day – 7 days a week. Supervision is achieved at less than 1/3 of the cost of other, alcohol only monitoring systems. SLEEPTIME™ provides a court admissable toxicoligy report when a subject uses alcohol or drugs.

Q2. Does SLEEPTIME™ detect drugs as well as alcohol?

The disruption of sleep patterns from alcohol use is well documented over a period of many years and by extensive sleep research. On the other hand there is little research on how drugs disrupt sleep. In the period of time that SLEEPTIME™ has been available it has caught Cocaine, THC, Benzodiazepines, Cocaine Meth, Amphetamines and Opiates.

Q3. How are SLEEPTIME™ Results confirmed?

The SLEEPTIME™ subject usually has the unit read every Monday and Thursday. If alcohol or drug use is suspected based on the SLEEPTIME™ reading, the subject is given a chance to admit such use. If the SLEEPTIME™ subject denies suspected alcohol or drug use a urine sample is collected and sent to the SLEEPTIME™ lab. The sample is analyzed for drugs of abuse and alcohol, including amphetamine, methamphetamine, THC, cocaine, opiates, benzodiazepines, PCP, barbiturates, Oxycodone and methadone. If results of this analysis are negative then an EtG (Ethyl Glucuronide test is run. EtG testing reliably detects beverage alcohol consumption for 3 ½ days after use.

Q4. How are SLEEPTIME™ results reported?

When a subject uploads SLEEPTIME™ data on report days it is automatically transmitted to the SLEEPTIME™ server through the agency internet connection. Upon receipt of the data the SLEEPTIME™ server, it is analyzed for abnormal sleep patterns. An email is immediately generated and sent to the agency SLEEPTIME™ system administrator. The email will indicate either that SLEEPTIME™ suspects’ drug or alcohol use or that subject has been clean since the last SLEEPTIME™ reading.

Q5. Is the SLEEPTIME™ system legally defensible?

SLEEPTIME™ is a screening test; it identifies sleep patterns that are likely to be inconsistent with abstinent functioning. When a subject is suspected of using they are given a chance to admit usage. If they deny usage then a urine sample should be taken and sent to the SLEEPTIME™ lab where it will be analyzed for the presence of alcohol and drugs. These urine tests must be completed to meet the requirement for legal defensibility.
