WHAT IS OPIOID RESCUE
Traveling Pharmacy and Drug Education Program with Narcan Rescue Kit Dispensing
Opioid Rescue is an innovative program designed to increase access to the opioid overdose antidote Narcan (naloxone) and remove barriers to care through the mobile dispensing of Narcan rescue kits.
You no longer have to obtain a prescription from your doctor or go to a pharmacy to obtain Narcan in Massachusetts. We bring the pharmacy to you. Opioid Rescue is a secure, safe way to obtain Narcan, overdose education, and training services in a non-medical, anonymous setting. Our mobile pharmacy staff will remotely fill and dispense Narcan (naloxone) products, as well as bill third-party insurance companies (optional). Services are HIPAA compliant. If you plan to use your insurance, we highly recommend submitting this information in advance by using the electronic form at the bottom of this page or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pilot program approved by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Pharmacy and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Supported by the MA Bureau of Substance Abuse Services.

SKIP THE LINE: SIGN UP TO PRE-FILL YOUR NARCAN RESCUE KIT
Skip the line at the event by submitting your information, including prescription insurance, in advance. Having this information in advance will allow the pharmacist to pre-fill and bill your Narcan (naloxone) rescue kit. You will need to verify your name and date of birth at pickup. Bringing your prescription insurance card with you to the event is highly recommended.
Like all other prescription medications, Narcan (naloxone) may be paid for by your insurance. Coverage and price vary based on each individual's coverage. Most plans cover naloxone products, but we cannot guarantee this for every insurance plan. Please use the electronic form below to submit the following: name of insurance carrier, name of pharmacy benefits manager (PBM), name of patient, patient ID, group ID, BIN number. All of this information is available on your prescription card.
What's a pharmacy benefits manager (PBM)?
A PBM is a third party that your insurance carrier uses to cover your prescriptions. For example, the Medicaid insurance carrier Mass Health uses several PBM's, including Neighborhood Health, Network Health, Fallon, Health Safety Net, Beacon Solutions, etc. A private insurance carrier such as Blue Cross Blue Shield often uses Express Scripts as a PBM.
Can someone else pick up my Narcan (naloxone) rescue kit at the event?
Yes, like any other prescription, another person may pick up your Narcan rescue kit. This individual must verify your full name and date of birth at pickup.
Cost should never be a barrier to receiving a Narcan rescue kit. If you do not have insurance or do not wish to use your insurance, our team will work with you to find the most cost-effective option to fit your needs.
Narcan Rescue Kits are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reserve your Narcan kit in advance by completing the Sullivan's Pharmacy Registration Form below. If you do not wish to bill your insurance, leave this information blank. Email the completed form to
