Making Life-Saving Narcan More
Available to First Responders

In 2018, RIZE contributed $105,000 to the Municipal Naloxone Bulk Purchasing Program that was created to reduce the cost of purchasing Narcan to Massachusetts cities and towns. First responders across the Commonwealth now carry and use Narcan to save the lives of people in danger of dying from lethal opioid overdose. The increasing need for the drug is placing a high demand on the discount purchasing program, which had depleted the initial funding, leaving municipalities to pay 46 to 78 percent more to buy the life-saving drug.
