New deal brings more NARCAN funding to Mass.

BOSTON (NEWS10) – Attorney General Maura Healey has announced a deal that will bring more funding for NARCAN to the Commonwealth.

Healey’s office said they reached a deal with a national pharmaceutical manufacturer that will require the company to pay $325,000 to help offset the costs of NARCAN.

The drug is used to counter the effects of opioid overdose. The first-of-its-kind payment is the equivalent cost of 10,000 units of NARCAN.
