CONCORD, NH–Continuing efforts to combat the heroin and opioid crisis and help save lives, Governor Maggie Hassan announced last week that the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Rite Aid have signed a standing order to stock naloxone, an emergency
treatment for heroin and opioid overdoses also known as Narcan, at Rite Aid pharmacies in New Hampshire.
With the standing order in place, any individual will be able to purchase Narcan from a Rite Aid pharmacist in New Hampshire. Rite Aid is the first pharmacy chain to sign a standing order in New Hampshire. Rite Aid will maintain kits that include two doses of naloxone, two atomizers and instructions in many of its 68 locations in New Hampshire and have the ability to order at all locations upon request.
