Alumni Story: Brian Moomey: Restoring Alcoholics to Freedom

Based in Missouri, Brian Moomey graduated from City Vision University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Addiction Studies. Currently, he works as an Addiction Counselor at Teen Challenge of the Four States, an organization in Neosho, MO that has a residential program for men who wish to overcome their struggles with drug or alcohol addiction. According to their website, their goal is to see these men “return to their families and communities as productive men prepared to fulfill God’s intended purpose for their lives.” Brian says he has seen God work at Teen Challenge, namely, when men come to Christ and see their families restored, as well as their release from life-controlling addictions.

Brian discovered City Vision University through a web search. He enrolled there because of its Christian perspective on addiction recovery, the cost was very reasonable, and he would be able to obtain a Bachelor’s degree by transferring previous college credit. The one course that’s impacted him the most is Counseling Alcoholics, where he was able to relate with his own struggle with alcohol. He says, “That all changed when I committed my life to Christ. I have lived alcohol-free for over 28 years.”

Brian is now working toward obtaining his Missouri State License in Addiction Recovery. Clearly, he hopes to help others overcome the same addictions he once had, and hopes to apply what he’s learned from City Vision University to real life.
