Victoria Doramus is a marketing expert based out of New York and London. She wrote an article on Medium post about her road to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
It took Victoria Doramus to hit rock bottom for her to realize that she needed help to overcome her addiction. It all began in 2011 when she went to rehab for the first time at the age of 26 years. The rehab was based in Tucson Arizon, the decision to go to a rehab came after her life became unmanageable and she succumbed to Adderall and cocaine abuse. After 45 days in rehab, she left and went back home. What Victoria Doramus did not know was that drug addiction is like a disease which cannot be cured overnight.
Victoria Doramus, a consumer trends expert, tried all means to get over her addiction. She changed cities and even her friends but none of these worked. She even went to rehab for a second time in Connecticut for 60 days but none of those helped. Her life moved from bad to worse. Her situation worsened when she became out of control to the point that she had lost her family and friends. She tried to get rid of her loneliness by getting herself higher. Doramus would even go to the extent of inducing herself to psychosis with amphetamine pills.
Her breakthrough came in 2017 when she flew to Austin, Texas to seek long-term treatment. The treatment center in Dallas was tough but that is what Doramus (@victoriadoramus) needed to get her life together. From waking up early, doing house chores and meetings with peers, slowly by slowly the life of Vitoria became transformed. After a few months at the facility, Victoria was able to get her life back together. She left the institution and currently she is working with an NGO that helps drug addicts.
