As Minnesota deals with an early summer spike in drug overdoses, some of the suppliers who put the lifesaving Narcan treatments on the street are finding out their government funding is being cut, if not eliminated.

Valhalla Place and the Steve Rummler HOPE Network are Minnesota's largest community providers of the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone. They provide naloxone kits and overdose training free of charge to those who need them, serving everyone from addicts and families to homeless shelters and reservations.
