Getting Help With A DWI

Published on August 13th, 2019

At River Ridge, we offer DWI programs serving Minneapolis if you ever find yourself in need of help. Our one-day program combines aspects of alcohol education, cognitive therapy, self-assessment, and a victim impact panel—offered in both Dakota and Hennepin.


The Goal

River Ridge Treatment Center provides holistic client care in the treatment of co-occurring mental health and addiction needs in a trauma-informed, gender-responsive, and client-empowered setting. With DWI’s, we hope to provide a timely and consistent response to prevent repeat offenses for DWIs offender in Dakota and Hennepin.


The Plan

We offer a treatment class based on two different levels, varying in content and hours.



  • Level 1: This DWI class is 10 hours long and takes place on the first Saturday of every month. You can enroll if you’ve received only one DWI and at the time, your BAC was 1.5 or lower.
  • Level 2: This class is 12 hours long and takes place on the third Saturday of every month. If you’ve gotten a second DWI offense and had a higher than .15 BAC level, you should be in this class.




Within these courses, we will cover topics such as brain chemistry of addiction, cognitive behavioral management, stress reduction/management, and DWI laws and consequences.
