New Tests in County Target Methamphetamine Users

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Minnehaha County is starting a random drug-testing program for methamphetamine users.

The program is similar to the 24/7 sobriety program, which uses twice-daily breath tests for most participants as a bond of sentencing condition. It targets repeat drunken driving offenders or probationers who struggle with alcohol addiction.

The meth program is called HOPE. It is designed to help those people who might not qualify for existing drug programs.

The Sioux Falls Argus Leader reports that participants are required to call in every morning to find out whether they’ll be tested for drugs that day. If the caller is late checking in, misses a test on a scheduled day or tests positive, he or she will immediately go to jail and appear before a judge the following day.
