The Steve Rummler HOPE Network's 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.

On April 5, 2018 the U.S. Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams, M.D., M.P.H., released a public health advisory  to urge more Americans to carry a potentially lifesaving medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. The medication, naloxone, is already carried by many first responders, such as EMTs and police officers.
