Victoria Doramus, 3 Times Is A Charm

Drug addiction is a serious issue and should be addressed as a disease, not as pure willpower. This is a lesson Victoria Doramus had to learn the hard way from firsthand experience. Fighting a cocaine and Adderall addiction for all of her adult life, Victoria had to hit rock bottom to get a firm grip back on her life.

Victoria graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a BA in journalism and mass communication. Working as a journalist writing articles for both the Trend Central and The Cassandra Report, Victoria Doramus has also consulted Mindshare and Stila Cosmetic. In addition to her journalism credentials, Victoria has worked in international markets as a group coordinator for some of the most prominent media executives in the industry.

Throughout her career, Victoria has been fighting addiction demons. In 2011 during her time as a freelancer writing and overseeing marketing projects for several high-end newspapers and magazines Victoria checked into a drug rehabilitation center Sierra Tucson, in Tucson Arizona. Sierra Tucson was Victoria’s first time in a rehab, but it would not be her last.

By 2016, Vitoria Doramus would again check in to another rehab center, this time in Connecticut for a 60 day stay. The Connecticut rehab would not be her last either, unfortunately. Later that year, Victoria was back in NYC, and her addiction had grown to the consumption of a bottle of Adderall. Eventually, Victoria would be homeless and arrested in 2016 on Thanksgiving Day.

Victoria would check herself into a third rehab, this time at the Burning Tree. The Burning Tree is located in Austin Texas and enforces a boot camp like atmosphere to help sober people up. Now Victoria has learned several drug managerial solutions that she implements in order to stay clean and focus on helping others with alcohol and substance abuse.
