Victoria Doramus knows what it feels like to be addicted to drugs. She understands struggling to free yourself from it’s grip. The shame and anger at failing at sobriety attempts, hurting not only herself but those around her. After 15 years of fighting her demons she accomplished one thing. She didn’t give up. She finally gained freedom from the drugs that ruled her life and is driven to help others just like her.
In 2016, Victoria, a digital and print media expert, got arrested in NYC. After years of chasing her addiction to amphetamine pills and alcohol, stints in rehab centers that failed, losing all connections to her family and friends, Victoria Doramus knew she had hit rock bottom. She understood she needed help from others since all of her own personal efforts to control her addiction by herself had failed.
According to visualcv.com, Victoria entered a long-term treatment program at Burning Tree, in Austin, Texas. A mix of 12-step program, spirituality and boot-camp, she finally allowed herself to acknowledge her bad choices and behaviors and start working on rebuilding her life. After finishing the program, she entered a sober living halfway house in Dallas that required her to work full-time and become self-sufficient, as well as attend meetings five days a week all with the support of a sponsor.
Victoria Doramus was lucky to have overcome her addictive behaviors and managed to work enough to get a plane ticket to Nashville where she finally got to see her sick mother in an assisted-living facility.
Wanting desperately to help others step off their path of addiction Victoria Doramus is now involved in several addiction non-profits and is in the process of getting funding to open a halfway house in NYC. Helping others with her own mix of the 12-step principles has now become her life’s work. See Victoria’s closet on Tradesy.
