Montgomery Barbershop Teaches Teens About Drug Abuse and HIV

The Council On Substance Abuse, (COSA) partnered with Educational Cutz, a barber shop in Montgomery, Alabama, to host a very special and important awareness event on drug abuse and HIV.

Educational Cutz, in addition to providing haircuts, provides a safe place for all of those in the community to go to for help.

“I feel like that’s peoples’ safe haven,” owner Lemuel Martin said on the shop. “To come and talk, to get advice, find out how to deal with your problems.”

Staff provided brochures and offered free HIV testing to educate and assist those 13 to 17 years old in attendance.

We salute COSA and Educational Cutz for this important work in Montgomery.
