Miss Community Clovia created the Barbershop Talk, One Community of Recovery because of the history of the Heroin/Opioid crisis. This has been a problem in all communities but has gravely affected the black community. The black community needs the treatment centers and other resources too. However, treatment most of time has been a jail or prison sentence.

The Barbershop Talk is changing the narrative on addiction as just a choice or a disease. As a result of scientific research, according to, we know that addiction is a medical disorder that affects the brain and changes behavior.

There are pathways to recovery but the first step must be self-driven. Former substance users, Certified Peer Recovery Specialists, counselors and the community will join us at the Barbershop Talk, One Community of Recovery on Friday, October 26, 2018 from 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at Tight Lynz Barbershop located 4908 Government Road, Richmond, VA.

The holidays can be a stressful time for everyone, in particular, those battling depression and addiction. Let’s get the resources to reduce the holiday stressors and triggers this Friday evening.
