They had me on JAMS for 2 years. I have been clean and sober for over 2 years, and I really have JAMS to thank for it.
I treated the JAMS employees with respect, and I was given respect in return.
Everyone who says it's a scam or a money making machine-- you're probably still smoking or drinking. For those of us who actually took probation and sentencing to heart-- JAMS helped me stay clean and sober.
You put yourself in the position.
You are the reason you're there.

Do you always have to test at jams or can you go somewhere else and test but show your PO or the courts prove you went to test but somewhere else?

stay clean! best and only way out of the system!also take the time to write down the colors called each day, a real pain, but they read off a list and don't always read all the colors! have been burned twice now on that and very difficult to prove their mistakes...good luck

i'm blue. I was told that after your first drop they only drug test you from then on. They don't do the etg - you might blow but that just shows if alcohol is in your system. My friend was also on blue a few years ago and drank the entire time. He said that they are basically only testing for alcohol currently in the system and for drugs. IS this true?

also I'd like to add that I think it's bullshit that they don't even give you a list of other things that could test positive for alcohol - from what I've read it's things like vanilla, mouthwash, some toothpastes, grape juice, pam non stick spray, perfume, lysol, some gums, ketchup, sugar alcohols, alcohol swabs, hand sanitizer, etc. I think that is sooooo wrong. If I worked there I would make a list so that people are blowing alcohol or having alcohol show up when they have not even drank anything.!!!!

holy shit, second day in the building and I already feel so oppressed, how can this shit even be legal? It's literally cruel and unusual punishment thinly disguised as a rehab program. I was ordered as part of my arraignment to start JAMS within 3 days, so the next day I went in but could not pee but they filled out my paperwork and said come back tomorrow for a free test. Came in yesterday and they were closed, so I went in today, waited an hour, almost couldn't pee with some creep staring at my junk, and they told me I technically missed a redrop, even though I had until today to start the program. Such a load of shit. Plus I had to pay the 9 bucks.

Hi i was just curious if I'm blue (random drug & alcohol pee testing once a week) than am I good for the week? Could they call me again this week and be testing twice this week? I am asking because I don't know if I still need to call every day of this week if they already called me for the week.

Thanks

How long does it take to no if you failed your jams test?

I recorded the message that didn't have my color called, and took a screen shot of the website with my color on it for the same day. If I wouldn't have checked the website, and just call the hotline I would have missed a test. That is unacceptable. Not sure what I can do about this problem, taking it to my lawyer Monday. Just make sure to check both the website and phone line people, this system is set up to fail. Fyi sometimes the new message from the woman's voice isn't available untill 4:35 so if you call at 4:34 you will have the colors for the day before which can mess you up.
