COSTA MESA, Calif., July 18, 2012 — When alcohol dependence is a factor in a child custody battle, the ruling may seem frightening for all parties involved. According to the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare, 1.08 million parents of minor children were admitted to the public treatment system within a year. With this staggering number, many states have instated policies for drug and alcohol testing to determine the custodial eligibility of a parent. However, without a way to monitor a parent in real time for alcohol use, an ex-spouse has no absolute assurance that the child is in the hands of a sober parent. That is why judges and family law attorneys all over the country are turning to the product called SOBERLINK to provide what is stated in the product’s name – a link between a person and sobriety.
