Let's Talk: Addiction

Rev. Doug Meyer is beginning a series of community conversations called Let's Talk. Join us on Sept. 26 at 7 pm as we talk about addiction.

Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church is pleased to host a new program called: Let's Talk. Through these conversations we hope to provide a forum where local experts can lead discussions about the hard, everyday life issues we all face.

Our upcoming gathering will be a conversation about addiction
Tuesday, September 26 at 7:00 pm in our Ministry Center.

We know this is an issue touching thousands of households in our community. Someone we know is struggling – our child,  parent, or neighbor. For most of us these situations are way beyond our experience, background or resources. When this happens what do we do and to whom do we turn?

We have invited Dr. Vic Vines and Dr. Hannah Moussa to help us know where to turn, what to do and what not to do as we come face to face with addiction. In addition to being trained in the fields of addiction treatment, Dr. Vines and Dr. Moussa have been personally impacted by addiction.

A brief word about our presenters:

  • Dr. Hannah Moussa is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and in private practice as an adult psychiatrist in Denton, where she treats many men and women who are dealing with mental illness and addiction, and frequently with both.

No stranger to the struggles of addiction, Dr. Moussa grew up in a family with an alcoholic parent, where her own life view and compassion for those with addiction and mental illness was set and led to her professional development and subsequent career in psychiatry.

  • Dr. Victor Vines is certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine, a Fellow of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, and has been in practice for 29 years .

After entering addiction recovery in 2009, his medical practice transitioned to mental health and addiction treatment under the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. Dr. Vines  is currently the Associate Medical Director at The Greenhouse in Grand Prairie, where he works closely with patients withdrawing from opioids, alcohol and benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Valium.
