Executive director of the Steve Rummler Hope Foundation trained Fargo Cass Public Health, a group of North Dakota residents and professionals, how to recognize and prevent an opioid overdose. Similar to other communities, prescription opioid and heroin deaths have become a grim reality for Fargo, ND. Lexi continues to propel the mission of the Foundation, expanding the borders of our overdose prevention program – saving lives is the epitome of our existence.
After the training, she was ecstatic to share her gratitude,
“Thank you Fargo Cass Public Health! It was an honor and a privilege to share SRHF’s overdose prevention education. I’m so grateful for all the individuals who made attending a priority – some had a 5 hr drive – wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Let’s roll out overdose prevention across ND. State to state sharing! Love it! Together “WE” save lives! Thank you!!! And thank you to everyone in the room for the good work you all do – I’m humbled by you all.”
The training was covered by local media. Our hope is that other organizations and communities in the area are inspired to learn more about opioid overdose, naloxone and the solutions.

An abundance of Minnesota families rallied at the state capitol unifying a statement which resonated throughout the halls of our lawmakers. We will no longer allow our children, our friends, and our neighbors to be taken from us. In support of our landmark legislation, the Opiate Product Stewardship (SF730, HF1440), the likes of which is the first of its kind in the nation, communities stood beside us at the historic Opioid Awareness Day.
For many, this day represents more than a platform to spread awareness; it’s a catalyst for changing the deeply rooted culture of over prescribing influenced by the drug manufacturers, honoring those we’ve lost, celebrating recovery and providing solutions to tide the increasing amount of deaths in our state.
Opioids. ENOUGH ALREADY!
The Opioid Product Stewardship Bill will provide important and sustainable funding to combat this national epidemic that’s killing our friends and family members. The bill has the potential to raise an estimated $22 million by increasing manufacturers’ already existing licensing fee to include one cent per morphine milligram equivalent on all opioids sold in an outpatient setting in the state of Minnesota.
The revenue generated from the licensing fee will be used to expand services for individuals addicted to opiates. A portion of the funds will be allocated for:
- competitive grants for one or more non-profit organizations involved with expanding prescriber education, public awareness and overdose prevention program development and sustainability, to include the public and emergency medical services.
- creating and maintaining a continuum of care from detox through sober living.
- Supporting families, communities and all individuals in our state impacted by the disease of addiction to opiates.
Opioid Awareness Day began with constituents meeting with their representatives where they told their stories, shared the facts and urged their representatives to support the solutions to the opioid crisis in our state.
…as we moved through the day and I visited with all the families who had lost their beautiful family members, I knew we were there to assure others are spared from the torment we face every day. We were there to honor those lost, but we are motivated by those that still live. WE are here to save lives.
A press conference followed, where key supporters and experts enlightened the media and public about the magnitude and origin of the opioid crisis along with the solutions offered by recent legislation. Speakers at the press conference included chief authors of the Opioid Stewardship Program, Sen. Julie Rosen and Rep. Dave Baker along with long-time advocate and friend of the Foundation, Sen. Chris Eaton. Others included our executive director, Lexi Reed Holtum and her courageous daughter, Isabella, board members, Shelly Elkington and Dr. Chris Johnson, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Emily Piper, Attorney General Lori Swanson, Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek and an EMT from Hennepin County Medical Center, Nathan Koranda.
Others experts included:
- Dr. Kurt Devine, CHI St. Gabriel’s Health
- Dr. Marvin Seppala, Hazelden Betty Ford
- Cody Wiberg, Board of Pharmacy
- Chris Edrington, Executive Director of St. Paul Sober Living
The day ended with a rally in the capitol rotunda. Key speakers and those that have been directly impacted by the public health crisis spoke to a mass of orange, an audience unified by orange ribbons and apparel. Families bore photos of their children, siblings, and friends on posters and shirts.
Thank you to everyone that assisted in organizing, leading, and supporting this historic day and our landmark legislation.

Executive director of the Steve Rummler Hope Foundation was present at a press conference held today at the Minnesota Attorney General’s office for the launch of the Dose of Reality campaign, an awareness campaign which was successfully implemented by Wisconsin’s Attorney General, Brad Schimel, that addresses the public health crisis of opioid overdose as the “fastest growing drug problem in the U.S. and Minnesota”. The Dose of Reality Awareness Campaign has a simple message, “Use your prescriptions only as prescribed to you. This is an issue where every household plays a role in a safer community”. The campaign aims to educate the public by 1) informing how to use prescriptions safely, 2) warning about the dangers associated with self-medication, and 3) providing information on the disposal of prescription medications — prescription drop off locations are searchable on an interactive map.
The campaign utilizes multiple communication tactics such as a website, brochures, and an alarming public service announcement which will play in movie theaters and on television.
We would like to thank the speakers at today’s conference which included, Attorney General, Lori Swanson, Wisconsin Attorney General, Brad Schimel, Representative Dave Baker, Senator Chris Eaton and Anoka County Attorney, Tony Palumbo for their tireless work and acknowledgement of the need for advocacy, awareness, prescriber education and overdose prevention.
