Victoria Doramus is now devoting most her time helping recovering people who suffer from substance abuse. The marketing and communications professional have had firsthand experience with the struggle associated with substance abuse. Victoria recently completed her third and longest stay in a drug rehab center in Texas, after two previously failed attempts. Today Victoria volunteers some of her time at the Amy Winehouse, a drug recovery support center that uses music as an expression solution to cope with recovery. In addition, Victoria is currently working on business plans to open up a halfway house for those recovering from substance abuse.
Victoria’s first time entering a rehab center was in 2011, where she completed a 45 day program in Tucson Arizona. Despite her best efforts, the short term facility failed to equip Victoria with the solutions to keep her drug addiction in control. Victoria attempted to heal by doing what she thought was best. Victoria changed friends and moved from state to state, but still ended up in another facility in 2016. This time deciding on a 60 day program in a Connecticut facility, Victoria was again ready to get her addictions under control. Not realizing at the time a drug addiction that began at age 15, which escalated to Adderall and cocaine would take more effort to control. By Thanksgiving that same year Victoria would be arrested and end up homeless with no support and a serious drug problem. After the holidays, in January Victoria flew to Texas to attempt her third time at sobriety. This time she would go to the Burning Tree a long term rehab facility in Austin. Here at the Burning Tree, Victoria would finally get the structure support system she so desperately needed. After enduring the 12 step program over the course of a year, Victory is focused and back ready to make a difference in the world.
