Victoria Doramus is currently an addiction recovery expert. She used to struggle herself with drug and alcohol addiction. She eventually hit rock bottom but managed to come back and by doing so she has become a stronger person. In the year 2011 when she was 26 years old she decided to get treatment. The first treatment center she went to was in Tuscon Arizona and was called Sierra Tuscon. After this she returned to Los Angeles. She didn’t realize how addicted she was and unfortunately her addiction to Adderal and cocaine came back to haunt her. She began to use again. She tried to move to different places thinking that a geographical change might help her but she brought herself along with her and her addiction so she kept relapsing and using again. She went to a 60 day recovery stay at a rehab in Connecticut and was more determined than ever to make it right.
According to crunchbase, after family and friends had given up on her she still couldn’t give up her drugs of choice. She couldn’t get it through her head that most people simply can’t sober up on their own. She needed to reach out to others to stay sober, not to stay high. She felt as though she was imprisoned by her addiction and gave up all hope of sobriety. After being arrested she realized that this was it. She needed to sober up or spend a life in institutions, hospitals, prisons, or possibly death.
Doramus, a market analyst, trends professional and philanthropist, wound up in a treatment center called Burning Tree in Austion Texas. This was a 12 step program like Alcoholics Anonymous is. It took a hard love approach. Prayer and meditation followed by mandatory meetings and a nightly A.A. meeting were required. This hard love approach helped her to become and stay sober.
