OVERDOSE PREVENTION

ABOUT

The Steve Rummler HOPE Network provides critical education and training across the state of Minnesota and beyond. Our training sessions have been held at large hospitals, universities, community centers and even for retail store security staff. We believe that everyone should learn how to recognize and reverse an opioid overdose.

STEVE'S LAW

The Overdose Prevention Program grew out of the need for implementation of Steve’s Law (Minnesota Good Samaritan/Naloxone legislation) which passed unanimously through both houses of the Minnesota state legislature in 2014. Steve’s Law provides limited immunity to those who call 911 in good faith to save a life and allows first responders, law enforcement and trained lay people to administer naloxone, which can counteract the effects of an opioid overdose within minutes.

NALOXONE

TRAINING

We offer training on three types of naloxone administration devices.

  • Evzio Auto Injector®
  • Intermuscular Injection with Vial and Syringe
  • Narcan Nasal®

WHO WE SERVE

The Steve Rummler HOPE Network (SRHN) under the medical direction of Dr. Anne M. Pylkas, MD has five primary communities which we serve and several ways in which we can partner with you to assist your community in preventing opioid overdose deaths. Those five communities are outlined below:

The SRHN partners to provide kits to these facilities to be given to individuals that have survived an opioid overdose or are at risk of an overdose; kits are also offered to their family members or loved ones.

This portion of our program is two-tiered:

  1. Train all staff and have naloxone on-site at every facility.
  2. Educated clients and their family members/loved ones about Steve’s Law and provide them with access to naloxone kits.

Memorandum to Minnesota Treatment Centers, Halfway Houses, and Sober Living Facilities

We train lay people in cities across the state. Some examples of public training sessions we’ve held include universities, churches, Rotary, town forums, individual house gatherings, retail store security, etc. We are happy to offer training sessions wherever needed.

We support all first responder agencies (including law enforcement and volunteers) in three ways:

  1. We will connect your agency with your EMS Region head to assist you in receiving state-provided support.
  2. We will provide naloxone training for your agency or train staff to be trainers.
  3. You can utilize the SRHN’s standing order so that your agency can house and dispense naloxone; this eliminates the need for your agency to have a medical director. If your agency has a medical director we can provide support documentation of the law and examples of standing orders in support of your medical director creating a standing order specific to your agency. See the signup standing order signup form below.

We provide training and naloxone for individuals in the drug treatment program and staff. Read more about treatment court.
