Recovery expert Victoria Doramus is looking to help people who struggle from addiction. She has worked with many organizations that help people from all walks of life. Doramus is passionate about addiction recovery because she struggled with it herself. Addiction does not exclusive to a certain type of person, but can affect anyone. Victoria had a thriving career in the medic/retail industry but the more success she attained, the worse her addiction became. It was only after realizing her addiction was a disease, and receiving tough love from Burning Tree rehab center, that she was able to put the pieces of her life back together again.
In her previous career, Victoria was respected as a talented profession. She was a hard working individual that definitely made a mark in the industry. She worked a wide variety of jobs. Victoria worked as a creative consultant for Stila Cosmetics and was a personal assistant for film director Peter Berg. There is nothing she couldn’t do. Victoria Doramus understood the market when it came to retail brands and how to showcase them. Her talent extends to ghostwriting for big companies including USA Today, Cosmopolitan Magazine, and The Huffington Post to name a few.
During this time her addiction to cocaine, alcohol, and Adderall became incredibly heightened. As mentioned in a post published by Medium.com, Doramus believed if she changed certain aspects of her life, the addiction would go away. This was not the case. Victoria realized at her ultimate low that she had a disease, and had to treat it accordingly. An important component to her journey is giving back. To ease other living being’s suffering can be incredibly rewarding. Victoria works closely with Best Friends Animal Society, a non-profit organization, to make sure that animals living in shelters do not get euthanized, but instead find loving homes. Doramus also works with Women’s Prison Association and the Amy Winehouse Foundation to education young people about addiction and help women get the resources with need to flourish.
