Victoria Doramus has an impressive resume that includes a stint as a personal assistant to Peter Borg, director and producer, cosmetic industry and media and marketing fields. She has been a successful name in her career.
Even though her life may have been glamorous from the outside of rubbing shoulders with some big names in Hollywood and the makeup marketing companies, her life has been anything but. She struggled along the way with addiction for years and finally overcame it through discipline and ambition to succeed. She may have sunk very low at one point, but like a phoenix, she rose from the ashes and became new.
Her work continued to propel her forward, but in 2011, in her mid-20’s, she went to rehab for the very time of a long battle with addiction. Her drug-fueled life was out of control for her to be the success that she wanted to be. After more than a month in rehab, she returned to Los Angeles.
As with most addicts, she tried to get clean. She moved, rid herself of certain friends but everything she did seemed to not work in her favor to free herself of her addiction. In 2016, she did another stay in rehab for two months.
Even though she fell back into her old habits and ways, at her lowest point, she was homeless and had not a friend in the world. She continued to get worse and worse and moved to New York City. Anything and everything that could satisfy her lust for getting high, she would consume. It came to a point, where her life was at stake, and the one that was killing her was Victoria.
In 2017, Victoria went to Burning Tree recovery center where she devoted herself entirely to getting better and progressing. After months and months, she moved to a halfway house in Dallas and lived off waiting tables which she had never done before.
Victoria Doramus is now a recovery expert living back in New York, going through the whole process herself. She shares her testimony with other fighting the same fight that she did for years. She states that it is not the actual addiction that is hard to beat, it is the person addicted and how they handle their hurdles of addiction.
