Victoria Doramus is one of many inspirational people who have gotten through addiction and are now substance-abuse free. In her 20s, she formed cocaine and Adderall habits that became problems. In 2011, at the age of 26, she entered rehab for the first time. She spent a whopping 45 days the facility in Tuscon. After coming out, she had a better understanding of herself and addiction. However, throughout the years after her first rehab experience, she kept relapsing into her bad habits.
Victoria Doramus tried to change the conditions in her life to kick her habits. She tried to change friends, residences, states and countries. However, she could never get rid of her substance abuse habits. It came to a point where she was homeless with persistent drug problems. She would consume a bottle of amphetamines a day, and she would enter states of psychosis.
On Thanksgiving Day, in 2016, Victoria Doramus did something that got her into trouble. She was arrested and had no one to call for help. All of her friends and family abandoned her because she proved to be too much of a burden with her immense drug problems. She started long-term treatment with an institution called Burning Tree. There were twelve steps in the program, and each step lasted for a month. Afterward, she lived in a sober-living halfway house in Dallas. She had absolutely nothing and was forced to remain sober. She worked as a waitress and was able to sustain herself. Eventually, she got back into contact with her mother and moved back to New York, where she now works for various non-profits.
Victoria Doramus supports the Best Friends Animal Society, Amy Whinehouse Foundation, the Women’s Prison Association, and Room To Read.
