Victoria Doramus is a marketing expert who works out of London and New York, and when she was 26 years old, she went to rehab in Tucson, Arizona. This was the first time she had ever experienced rehab and had no idea about what addiction was or how it was effecting her life. She had been using cocaine and Adderall, and moved back to LA after spending 45 days in the rehab center. Over the following years, she moved around the country, tried changeup her friends, and even attended grad school in London but found that was still dealing with addiction.
In 2016, Victoria Doramus bottomed out and decided to go to a 60 day rehab center in Connecticut. She moved to NYC after this and found herself with the same problems. This time she became homeless but kept trying to get clean all on her own. She felt lost and didn’t know what to do. She wanted to get sober but didn’t have the tools to do so. In 2017, Victoria Doramus decided to undergo treatment for her addiction at the Burning Tree, which is located in Austin, Texas. The Burning Tree followed a 12-step program and was kind of like going to boot camp.
Victoria Doramus eventually went to AA meetings and found a support group that really helped. She began to take a deeper look at herself and started to discover the behaviors and choices that had led her to addiction, again and again. She moved back to NYC and works to help people just like her who have nowhere to turn for help. Victoria Doramus, also a fashion expert, would love to startup a halfway house where in NYC where people can work towards a better life. She has discovered that helping others is exactly part of what continues to help her.
