Over 2.5 million Americans suffer from opioid use disorder, which contributed to over 28,000 overdose deaths in 2014.

In Richmond, Virginia the use of opioids, in particular heroin, threatens our homes and communities on a daily basis. As awareness builds, many are left struggling to find a solution. Listen Up Barbershop Talks has become a catalyst for just that.

For an hour and a half Barbershop Talks, sponsored by the Richmond Behavioral Health Authority, sets the table for open conversation with African-American men to discuss the truth about the heroin epidemic. Participants speak candidly about their struggles with addiction. They fill the room with vivid illustrations about what led them to the drug and what steps they’ve taken to overcome it.
